New York: Simon and Schuster, 1946. First edition, second printing. Photographic frontispiece portrait. xvi, 334, [1] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Original red cloth. Very good (some toning of endsheets). First edition, second printing. Photographic frontispiece portrait. xvi, 334, [1] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Presentation Copy to Eleanor Roosevelt. Presentation copy, inscribed to Eleanor Roosevelt by David Kahn and Thomas Sugrue on the flyleaf. Segrue writes: "I dared not inject my own opinions into this record of Colonel Starling, but I was happy to tug at the historical garment hem of the only President I rank with my greatest hero - Jefferson - your husband, Franklin D. Roosevelt - Sincerely, Thomas Sugrue 3/9/46." Kahn, who was a mutual friend of Roosevelt and Sugrue and who encouraged the book's production (see page xvi of the introduction - "without his enthusiasm, stimulation, aid and support, it could not have been completed"), writes: "To Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt: - The story of a faithful follower of your 'sainted' husband - to which I add my appreciation to you for your confidence and friendship. - David E. Kahn."
