Some Elements of the American Character. An Oration Delivered at Faneuil Hall, July 4, 1946

By Kennedy, John F.

Pensacola FL: King & Queen Press, 1976. Paperback. First separate publication. Unpaginated preliminary Preface, 17p., letterpress on laidlined paperstock with rubricated titlepage, a softbound pamphlet in 6.5x5 inch dark blue wraps with printed paper label (also rubricated). Fine-presswork on the cheap; not sewn but glued to wrapper, first half adhered to front cover verso, other to back cover, with a break at pp.4/5 due to this time-saving technique, nonetheless quite attractive. A fine undamaged unmarked copy, one of a run limited to 350 copies; a merely ephemeral piece, but quite early for a JFK collectable, only Why England Slept and As We Remember Joe (1945) precede it. K & Q Press was founded in 1962 by James A. Servies (1925-2014) and wife Lana D., who survives him. The occasion for this speech is obscure, reprinter/editors say "very little attention was given to [it] by Boston newspapers of the day" and that "no mention of the speech can be found in any of the numerous books about JFK." Well, after all-- it is a stunningly lame effort! filled with patriotic boilerplate; better forgotten. Nor was John yet running for office. He had the year before undertaken a memorial volume, "As We Remember Joe," a plausibly exhausting ordeal, he was presumably still recuperating from his PT 109 shipwreck and swim, and had numerous back operations to look forward to.

Blurbed very favorably by Joanne Kyger. Michael McClure also likes it. Even this burnt-out old cataloguer does.
