THE LATE GEORGE APLEY: A Novel in the Form of a Memoir. John P. Marquand. THE LATE GEORGE APLEY: A Novel in the Form of a Memoir.
Boston: Little, Brown and Co. 1937. First edition of his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. INSCRIBED, "For Henry T. Brown Jr with kindest regards, John P. Marquand." Also includes two typed letters to Brown signed by Marquand: one saying he can send the books, and one apologizing for getting his name wrong. Brown, a famous book collector, always went by H. Tatnall Brown. The letters are tipped to the endpaper and verso of half-title page (across from title page). First printing, with "Lovely Pearl" on the first line of page 19, as we think it is in all first printings (changed to "Pretty Pearl" in later printings, as outlined in the current edition of our Collected Books). Faint vertical lines on some pages, as usual for this title, otherwise very good to fine in dust jacket with small professional repair at top of spine and to a few tiny chips. A very nice copy of an unaccountably scarce book, and particularly so with what would appear to be an early inscription, as both letters are dated in April 1939. SCARCE CONTEMPORARILY INSCRIBED COPY.

TWO TYPED LETTERS, SIGNED. James A. Michener. TWO TYPED LETTERS, SIGNED.
While Associate editor of Macmillan's Educational Department, Michener suggested Mrs. Ella-Frances Barker as one of the authors in a proposed series of geography books for children. Mrs. Barker did not have time to complete the assignment and, unbeknownst to Michener, turned the project over to her young son. The first letter, dated December 30, 1946, is warm and chatty, signed "Jim Michener" and proposes a meeting between Professor and Mrs. Barker and Michener's managing editor, Philip Knowlton. The second letter, dated April 16, 1947, is written after receipt of the manuscript. Diplomatic and decidedly business-like (with not-so-subtle hints that the manuscript is not exactly up to par) it is signed "James A. Michener." Both letters are typed on Macmillan letterhead; the first on a single sheet, the second on two. The first has a very light stain at the head of the page, and light creasing where previously folded into sixths, but is otherwise fine and includes the original mailing envelope. The second letter is a little darkened and lightly creased along the edge of the first page, but is otherwise fine.

SEIZE THE MOMENT: America's Challenge in a One-Superpower World. Richard M. Nixon. SEIZE THE MOMENT: America's Challenge in a One-Superpower World.
New York: Simon & Schuster, (1992). First edition of his critically praised assessment of American foreign policy. The book is SIGNED by Nixon and has a laid-in TYPED LETTER INITIALED by Nixon that also has his HOLOGRAPH SALUTATION. The letter, to The Honorable Richard Lyng, is on Nixon's personal engraved letterhead from his Woodcliff Lake NJ address, measures 6.75 x 9" and is dated December 23, 1991: "Dear Dick [written in Nixon's hand], I thought you might be interested in seeing some unconventional wisdom on foreign and domestic issues. Best wishes for the New Year." Lyng (1918-2003) oversaw the government's food programs as an Assistant Secretary of Agriculture under Nixon from 1969 to 1973 and was Ronald Reagan's Agriculture Secretary from 1986 to 1989. Nixon (1913-1994) was, of course, the only President to have resigned from office due to scandal. In later years, however, he traveled extensively to meet with foreign leaders, wrote, and took speaking engagements. In 1986, he journeyed to the Soviet Union, after which he shared his foreign policy suggestions and impressions of Mikhail Gorbachev with Reagan. Following that trip, Nixon was ranked in a Gallup poll as one of the ten most admired men in the world and Newsweek Magazine ran a story on "Nixon's comeback" with the headline "He's back." The Nixon Center he founded in 1991 is now the Center for the National Interest, a non-partisan public policy institution. (Wikipedia). Apparently there really are second acts in American lives. The book is fine in fine dust jacket; the letter is fine with light crease where folded. SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY WITH LETTER LAID IN.
