Signed copy of At Ease: Stories I Tell to Friends by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Octavo, viii, 400pp. Black cloth, title in gilt on spine. Lacking “first edition” statement on copyright page. Light foxing to half title, internally clean, a very good example. Dust along top edge of text block. In publisher’s first state dust jacket, $6.95 on front flap, tape repairs to verso, scuff mark to lower edge of spine, a very good example.
Inscribed on the half-title: “For Warren McClain, with greetings and best wishes. Dwight D. Eisenhower / 1967.”
A collection of essays and anecdotes from the retired president and Supreme Allied Commander. Published in 1967 shortly after his memoirs, this book includes stories that were too personal or did not fit the narrative of an official memoir.
