About This Item

Random House, NY , 2004. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. "In the spring of 1884 Ulysses S. Grant heeded the advice of Mark Twain and finally agreed to write his memoirs... [This] seemingly straightforward decision would profoundly alter... the course of American literature... [The] two men became close friends and intimate collaborators. Grant raced against the spread of cancer to compose a triumphant account of his life and times... Twain struggled to complete and publish his greatest novel, 'Adventures of Huckleberry Finn'. [Pub. Info] "With a cast of fascinating characters, including General William T. Sherman, William Dean Howells, William Henry Vanderbilt, and Abraham Lincoln, Perry's narrative takes in the whole sweep of a glittering, unscrupulous age." [Pub. Info] There is a protective mylar cover. STATED 1ST EDITION.
