Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE---------------ELEANOR: THE YEARS ALONE by Joseph P. Lash, Foreword by Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr. Joseph P. Lash was a newspaperman-turned-historian whose lifelong friendship with Eleanor Roosevelt became the basis of an acclaimed biography. In his 30-year career as a biographer, Mr. Lash wrote full-length studies on such figures as Dag Hammarskjold and Helen Keller. But it was ''Eleanor and Franklin,'' the first installment in his two-volume biography of Mrs. Roosevelt, that won him the most enduring fame. The 1971 book, which won the Pulitzer Prize, drew heavily on Mrs. Roosevelt's papers, to which Mr. Lash had been given access by the Roosevelt family. But while the work had the imprimatur of an authorized biography, ''there is nothing of an 'official' label on any of its pages,'' the Pulitzer jurors noted. ''It is a sharp, vivid and yet kindly recreation of the lives of a famous couple, shedding new insights on their sometimes inspired, sometimes deeply troubled relationship.'' The biography's second volume, ''Eleanor: The Years Alone,'' published a year later, focused on Mrs. Roosevelt's last 17 years after the death of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1945. The historian John P. Roche remarked that, coming so soon after ''Eleanor and Franklin,'' there was something unavoidably anticlimactic about the second book. It lacked, he said, ''the contrapuntal tension between those two singular human beings.'' But as Dr. Roche and other reviewers observed, ''The Years Alone'' combined the same meticulous scholarship and an eye for the telling anecdote that made ''Eleanor and Franklin'' a best-seller - and even the basis of a nine-hour television adaptation by ABC. Mr. Lash's 23-year friendship with Mrs. Roosevelt began on a train in 1939, when he was 29 years old, and lasted until her death in 1962. This is the hardcover only stated Norton Edition from 1972. Other than a name on the flyleaf, both the cover and the book are in excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, markings, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight (see photo). **Note: All books listed as FIRST EDITIONS are stated by the publisher in words or number lines--or--only stated editions that include only the publisher and publication date.
