RICHARD NIXON
"Here is the opportunity to see and to judge the kind of man Richard Nixon perceives himself to be...."
Book inscribed and signed: "To Samuel C. Vickory (sic)/With best wishes/from Richard Nixon" on the first blank flyleaf. His autobiography, RN: The Memoirs of Richard Nixon, 1,144p, 6¾x9½, hardcover. Grosset & Dunlap, New York: 1978. Second Printing. From the jacket notes: "This is the autobiography of Richard Nixon, the thirty-seventh president of the United States. Before him only six men who held the office wrote comprehensive memoirs. Now, here is Richard Nixon's self-portrait; a major work of autobiography, an extraordinary historical document, an intensely personal memoir. Richard Nixon begins his story with his earliest recollections of a rural California boyhood and continues through the moment he and his family left the White House for the last time. Within that journey, we see the struggle of a man to implement what he believed...Without question, this book will be a basic source for historians and scholars. It is likely to engender as much debate and discussion as did the author himself throughout his public life....." Nixon resigned the presidency on August 9, 1974, stating: "it has become evident to me that I no longer have a strong enough political base in Congress" to continue in the office. Four years later, he published this book, in which he admits his involvement in the Watergate cover-up and discloses that he preserved the tapes that resulted in his resignation in an effort to protect himself from charges from aides that might testify against him. Owner's name, "Samuel C. Vickroy", written on inside cover opposite signature page. In original dust jacket, which is lightly worn at edges and nicked at bottom blank margin at spine. Book in fine condition.
