GLENN, John. John Glenn: A Memoir. New York: Bantam, (1999). Octavo, original blue paper boards, original dust jacket. $600.

First trade edition of the astronaut and senator's "utterly plainspoken yet thrilling autobiography," boldly inscribed on the half title by him: "To J— John Glenn."

In 1962 Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth; thirty-six years later, he returned to space aboard the shuttle to investigate space's effect on the aging process. "Glenn's utterly plainspoken yet thrilling autobiography will put a lump in readers' throats. The astronaut and four-term U.S. senator from Ohio seems to embody the best old-fashioned American values of integrity, personal discipline, love of country, honesty, courage and responsibility… Told without an ounce of pretension, this is a memorable autobiography by a man who embraced public life and held it with a unique blend of Roman virtue and American confidence (Publishers Weekly). With 16 pages of black-and-white photographic illustrations. Co-authored with Nick Taylor. Preceded by a signed limited edition of 3500 copies.

A fine copy.
