Remembering Kennedy: One Brief Shining Moment.
Item Number: 3910
New York: Little, Brown and Company, 1983.
First trade edition of the historian’s most well-known piece of literature. Octavo, original blue cloth. Signed by William Manchester on the title page. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket with the lightest of shelf wear to the crown of the spine. A very bright example.
Manchester provides the reader with a myriad of anecdotes and insights into a life filled with the drive of excellence. A personal friend of John Kennedy, Manchester’s knowledge of the Kennedys spans from JFK’s plans for withdrawal from Vietnam by 1965 to personal quirks and idiosyncrasies of the magnetic 35th president of the United States.
