NIXON
Holt (1956), New York - The first study of this complicated man. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by both Toledano and Nixon to editor William Randolph Hearst, Jr., son of William Randolph Hearst, the newspaper despot and subject of Orson Welles's film CITIZEN KANE. It was Hearst who was largely responsible for the Hollywood image of the hard-drinking cynical reporter always in pursuit of breaking news. The younger Hearst shared the 1956 Pulitzer Prize for international reporting for his interviews with the new Russian leadership, and in 1959 he would cover Nixon's visit to the Soviet Union. Nixon's inscription reads: "To Bill Hearst/who is always a/friend in good or/bad weather -- from/Dick Nixon." Over the course of time, Nixon's attitude toward journalists became much less friendly. A fine association copy. Spine of book darkened. Very Good in a Near Fine, price-clipped dustwrapper [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
      [Bookseller: Charles Agvent, est. 1987, ABAA, ILAB]
