John F. Kennedy. Harper/Book-of-the-Month Club/1956.
INSCRIBED by JFK to a nurse who worked at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., in the late 1950s and early 1960s. I bought this book from her family, with whom it had remained since Kennedy inscribed it.
This copy is a Book-of-the-Month Club edition, with the exterior dressed up with a trade edition dust jacket. The previous owner's name and sticker are on the front pastedown, and another family member's name has been blacked out on the pastedown with a marker. These are covered by the front flap of the dust jacket. Otherwise, the book is in good condition: shelf wear, some browning to the endpapers; interior clean and attractive.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize.
Jackson Pollock, Francis Valentine O'Connor, Eugene Victor Thaw. Yale University Press, 1978.

Four volumes in fine condition. Slipcase has minimal shelf wear.
