TRUMAN, Harry. Memoirs: Year of Decisions. WITH: Memoirs: Years of Trial and Hope. Garden City: Doubleday, 1955-56. Two volumes. Octavo, original black cloth, original dust jackets.

First editions of Truman's memoirs, signed on the half title of Volume I: "With kindest regards to Marie Gibbons from Harry Truman. N.Y.C. July 6, 1956."

"Truman's memoirs are an invaluable record of the former president's tumultuous years in office, his early days in Missouri, and his rise in local and state politics. There are delightful glimpses of his family life, striking appraisals and anecdotes of world leaders such as Churchill, Stalin, Chiang and De Gaulle, and candid disclosures about the background of national and international events. But overshadowing all is the story of the glorious task of bringing a war to an end, of working for an enduring peace and leading the free world into a new age" (Doubleday).

Books very nearly fine. Bright dust jackets extremely good, with slight rubbing and foxing and some tape repairs to versos. A handsome inscribed set.
