I saw Hitler!
New York: Farrar & Rinehart, Incorporated, 1932 - Octavo. Original orange cloth, title to the upper board in black. A little rubbed, the spine a touch sunned and creased, light toning, but a very good copy. 40 plates. First edition. Extremely uncommon. Attack on the Nazi regime by the woman known as the First Lady of American Journalism. As head of the New York Post's Berlin bureau - the first woman to head a foreign news bureau of any importance - Thompson met Hitler on a number of occasions, for the first time in 1931, and in 1934 her continued opposition to Nazi rule led to her being expelled from Germany, the first journalist to be so. Back in the United States she began writing her "On the Record" column which ran in the New York Herald Tribune, and was syndicated to over 150 newspapers, she also contributed a a monthly column to the Woman's Home Weekly, and made frequent broadcasts on NBC. In 1939 she was on the cover of Time, the accompanying article describing her as the second most popular and influential woman in America after Eleanor Roosevelt, and explaining the nature of her influence: "Dorothy Thompson is the U. S. clubwoman's woman. She is read, believed and quoted by millions of women who used to get their political opinions from their husbands, who got them from Walter Lippmann" (Time, 12 June 1939). Katherine Hepburn's character in the Oscar-winning comedy Woman of the Year (1942) was based on Thompson. Bookplate of Irma B. Laykin, first wife of Los Angeles diamond merchant and jeweller Sol Laykin, to the front pastedown. [Attributes: First Edition]
