33rd President. Signed book: Mr. Citizen. Highly uncommon Author’s Edition. NY: Bernard Geis Associates, 1960. Hardcover with slipcase, 6.5 x 9.5, 315 pages. Signed and inscribed on the half-title page in black ink, “To Dr. Franklin D. Murphy, from Harry S. Truman with kindest regards and happy memories of our most pleasant association & friendship. Independence Sept. 4, 1960”.
This is the Author’s Edition, of which only 100 copies were issued (making it much scarcer than the limited edition set of 1,000), to be given by President Truman to friends and family members.
RARE edition of a book in which the former President bluntly writes about Dwight Eisenhower, Adlai Stevenson and religion.
