Price: $50.00
Publisher Location: New York
Publisher: Random House
Year Published: 1999
Book Condition: Near fine
Edition: First Edition
First edition/ Signed "E Morris" on the title page, with a printed letter from the publisher indicating that this is a signed first edition, and writing briefly about the controversial technique Morris used to tell his story. Morris won the Pulitzer Prize for The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt; he was appointed President Reagan's authorized biographer in 1985. Reportedly, even though he was allowed unprecedented access, the last term of Mr. Reagan's Presidency and indeed perhaps the anti-intellectualism of Mr. Reagan himself made writing a Presidential biography difficult at best: hence Morris's controversial technique of introducing himself as part of the story, including imagining being with him in his youth. A book to neither please the right wing, nor those who disclaim the greatness of his eight years in office, but rather written to help understand the man called Dutch. Head and tail of the spine and corners all bumped a bit, but in general a fine, unread copy. Near Fine in Near Fine Dust Jacket/
