JIMMY CARTER The memoir Keeping Faith written and signed by the Commander-in-Chief Book signed: “Jimmy Carter” on the colophon page beneath the words: "This specially bound/limited edition/is signed by the author." 6½x9½. Keeping Faith/Memoirs of a President by Jimmy Carter. Hardcover. Published by: Bantam Books. Place: New York City, New York. Year: 1982: Pages: 622. Memoirs by Carter of his years as 39th U.S. President. In his introduction, titled "A First Word", he writes in part: "This book is my own work, typed by me at home on my trusty word processor. There were times when I had other responsibilities or when I yielded to the temptations of my nearby wood-working shop or a convenient fishing place, but I have spent most days and nights of the past year on this project. It has been much more difficult than I had originally anticipated - both the actual research and writing and the necessity for me to reassess my own actions as President in the light of subsequent events. Although my overriding impression of the four years is one of gratitude and pleasure, a few of the memories were downright painful for me…." Bound in dark blue linen cloth with gilt lettering on the spine. In original dark blue linen slipcase. The book is in fine condition, the slipcase overall is fine, but shows a little wear. James Earl "Jimmy" Carter (born in 1924) served as 39th U.S. President from 1977-1981. He was the only one-term Democratic President of the 20th century and the first Democrat not to be reelected since Grover Cleveland in 1888. Carter, the only U.S. President to graduate from the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis (1946, at the age of 21), is also the only U.S. President to serve a full four-year term without making an appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. He won the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize for his diplomatic efforts both during and after his presidency. After serving two terms in the Georgia State Senate, Carter ran unsuccessfully for Governor in 1966. Four years later, he ran again and won, serving as Governor of Georgia from 1971-1975.
