About This Item

New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1962. Early printing of this selection of President Kennedy's speeches and writings from election through his first legislative year. Octavo, original cloth. Edited by John W. Gardner. Foreword by Carl Sandburg. Introduction by President Kennedy. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Jacket design by Ricki Levinson. Author photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt. "President Kennedy has an extraordinary capacity to express himself in speech and in writing. Rarely has an American President stated the nation's problems with such clarity, or voiced its aspirations so movingly. The reader of these pages is in no danger of getting entangled in thickets of bureaucratic prose. He will find here a lucid, instructive and eloquent introduction to the problems facing a great nation in a troubled century" (from the Editor's note).
