MEMOIRS; [Bound typescript manuscript].

New York: no-publisher, circa 1975. Bound mimeograph or photocopy typescript with the occasional hand correction reproduced in the copy. Undated. 477 pages printed on rectos only. Bound in 4to quarter faux leather over simulated marbled paper boards with gilt lettered and ruled spine. Title page with title, author’s name, and a New York address only; following page prints only a subtitle of sorts reading, “MY FRIENDS AND FOES ARE ALL/ MY FRIENDS/ The Recollections of James Bruce.” James Cabell Bruce (1892-1980) worked in various foreign services positions before serving as U.S. ambassador to Argentina during the Truman administration from 1947-1949, during the first term of Juan Peron. Prior to his ambassadorship he also worked as a financial advisor and was director of several large businesses; afterwards he was director of the Mutual Defense Assistance Program, a forerunner of NATO, before returning to business life in 1950. He also wrote THOSE PERPLEXING ARGENTINES in 1953 and mounted an unsuccessful campaign for a Senate sear in 1958. Very good to near fine with only mild foxing to page edges and title page margins (otherwise free of foxing) and light rubbing to covers mostly at edges and front spine hinge. Possibly unique as all copies on OCLC are 382 pages and published by Gateway Press.
