"WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?"

COOKE, Alistair. The Americans. Fifty Talks on Our Life and Times. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1973. Octavo, original cream cloth, original dust jacket.

First edition of this collection of talks, warmly inscribed by Cooke to an editor at Knopf, "For Bob Cohen: Where have you been all my life? Warm regards: Alistair. Dec. 8/79."

This work continued the theme Cooke established with his wildly popular 1972 television series, America: A Personal History of the United States. The recipient was a sales representative at Knopf.

Book fine, dust jacket spine a bit toned. An about-fine copy.
