KENNEDY, Robert F. To Seek a Newer World. Garden City, NY: Doubleday, 1967. Octavo, original navy cloth, original dust jacket. $2800.
First edition, published less than seven months before RFK's assassination, inscribed and signed "For Jim & Dorothy, With Best Wishes, Robert F. Kennedy."
"The sixties were a turbulent decade, and Robert Kennedy responded to that turbulence with unusual directness and sensitivity. He had evolved from the rigid prosecutor of a decade earlier into a popular leader who combined political realism with social idealism and passion with humor" (Foner & Garraty, 614), all qualities informing this collection of essays, which grew out of Kennedy's travels and experiences as Attorney General and as a Senator, and which address such topics as the youth movements, race relations in America, nuclear arms and Vietnam.
Book about-fine; dust jacket with slight edge-creasing, most notably to rear panel. A near-fine inscribed copy.
