THE KEY. Benita Kane Jaro. THE KEY.
New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, (1988). First edition. SIGNED in full on title page and then INSCRIBED: "To Doris, Thanks forever. Love, Beni June 4, 1988." A nice TLS from Jaro to author/reviewer Doris Grumbach laid in. Fine in near fine dust jacket with only touch of edge wear, and Grumbach's 8 line blurb on the back panel. "If there is to be a worthy successor to Mary Renault, or to Marguerite Yourcenar, it may be Benita Kane Jaro. I am firm in my belief that THE KEY will illuminate Rome in the first century before Christ in the way the MEMOIRS OF HADRIAN did for the following century. Prediction: Benita Kane Jaro is at the start of a distinguished career in historial fiction."

A WHITE HOUSE DIARY. Lady Bird Johnson. A WHITE HOUSE DIARY.
New York: Holt Rinehart & Winston, (1970). First edition. Front endpaper with SIGNED bookplate affixed at center and LBJ Library & Museum gold-foil emblem affixed to lower inside corner. The dust jacket is not priced and has the publication date code "1170" at bottom (not present on other jackets we've seen); is cream-colored versus the bright white usually seen; is slightly taller and not quite as wide; and is of better quality than others we've examined. The book itself is a full ounce heavier than other copies. We're not aware of a book-club edition of this title. The LBJ Library and Museum was not dedicated until May 1971--perhaps a special issue, or an early one, set aside for sale there? Fine in fine dust jacket. INTERESTING ANAMOLY OR EARLY ISSUE?
