Warner Books Grosset & Dunlap Random House, 1980. Limited Numbered First Edition, First Printing. Full leather. Fine / No Jacket as Issued. Item #4172
A beautiful full dark red leather Limited Numbered First Edition, First Printing signed by the late U.S. President Richard Nixon on the limitation page and numbered only 156 of 2,500 Limited Edition copies. Distributed by Random House. The copyright page states "First Printing: May 1980" with a number line ending in 2, which is not an indicator of a 2nd printing but rather an indicator of a Random House First printing when coupled with the "First Printing" statement. With moire silk endpapers, gold gilt titling and page edges, and bound-in silk bookmark. Still in the original shipping carton with shipping documents, the book is in fine condition but for a few tiny tiny marks on the gilt edge, probably original to the publisher, very minor. Written five years following Nixon's resignation, Nixon regrets that by leaving office he left unfinished the work in which he believed in the most: world peace and U.S. security from another major war. This was written at a time when the Cold War with the Soviets was worsening; many things had changed since Pres. Nixon left office, but many unfortunately had not. A fascinating look into the mind of what many consider one of our most intelligent presidents. 341 pp. including an extensive index. Includes the publisher's original Certificate of Authenticity and order form. A beautiful book.
