About This Item

New York: Alfred A Knopf, 1977. Sixth Printing 1977 From the time Alistar Cooke left Yale in the 1930's he has been the most authoritative interpreter of the American scene and American mores.... a man who has approached the unfolding history of his adopted country with wit, style, reason and a refreshing idealism. In this major book, Cooke brings the same quality to bear on six famous transatlantic figures....three of them English, three American....each of whom has a legendary meaning for our time, and a special meaning for Alistar Cooke. We will know them better from having seen them through his eyes. The contents include " A Note on Fame and Friendship". The six chapters are of Charles Chaplin, Edward VIII, Charles Menchen, Adlai Stevenson, Bertrand Russell and Humphrey Bogart. Illustrated with six photographs of these six figures. Navy blue cloth boards with natural-color cloth spine. No ownership markings. The spine ends of the dust jacket have been neatly strengthened with scotch tape. This copy carries a remainder mark to top edge. It remains to be a clean book in a bright photo dust jacket.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good.
