Guide

GREAT CONTEMPORARIES

Penetrating profiles of twenty-one political and literary luminaries. An utter delight to read; beautifully written, brutally opinionated (Hitler comes off just a bit better than George Bernard Shaw). The ensuing "Revised" edition (and most future reprints) added four new profiles: Lord Fisher, Charles Stewart Parnell, Lord Baden-Powell and President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Description: This is a virtually mint copy of the First American edition in the correct dust jacket, which is unclipped and extravagantly bright and fresh with just a hint of edgewear. The book is similarly immaculate; as-new inside and out.

Rare thus.
