The History List

"Reminiscences" signed by the author General Douglas MacArthur, 1964 - First edition, #657 of 1750 signed copies


Limited first edition, signed and numbered. No. 657 of 1750 signed copies. In a slip case. In excellent condition. (We offered #1486 earlier this year.)

One of the most decorated generals in American history, MacArthur completed his autobiography shortly before his death on April 5, 1964.

Numerous B/W photographs including the one dated Sep 2, 1945, aboard the new 45,000-ton battleship U.S.S. Missouri when the Japanese signed their surrender.

Color portrait of MacArthur, a five-star general, as frontispiece. Marbled endpapers. With maps and other illustrations.

The book is in excellent condition, looking almost as if it has never been read. There is a book plate from an earlier owner on the inside from cover. The slip case itself has some wear to the front edge, as you can see in the photos.

Shipping: $20. Please allow two weeks for shipping.
