THE VANTAGE POINT: Perspectives of the Presidency, 1963-1969

New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1971. First Edition. Hardcover. Memoirs of the 36th president of the United States. A moderate Democrat and vigorous U.S. Senate leader, he was elected vice president in 1960 and acceded to the presidency upon the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. His administration produced significant social welfare and civil rights legislation, but his escalation of the Vietnam War seriously divided the American people and compromised his credibility with a large segment of the electorate. Includes appendices of letters, documents, and maps, as well as 72 pages of photographs. This copy is signed by Lyndon Baines Johnson on a presidential bookplate affixed to the half-title, and accompanied by the original invoice and purchase receipt from the LBJ Library in Austin, Texas. Octavo. Original red cloth binding, with blue and gilt titles. Typical light yellowing to the dust jacket; else near fine. Near fine / Near fine. Item #66414
