The American President by Philip and Peter Kunhardt
Easton Press Deluxe Edition, 2003
This is a deluxe leather bound edition of “The American President” published by the Easton Press in 2003. From the publisher, “The first fully illustrated book in thirty years to examine all the U.S. presidents, the Kunhardts' The American President is an overarching look at our nation's highest office. Organized with the help of historian Stephen Skowronek of Yale University, and with an introduction by the venerable presidential scholar Richard E. Neustadt of Harvard University, the book challenges any fixed notion of what the presidency is or has been. With an original approach, personal interviews with our living presidents, exhaustive research into presidential writings, both published and unpublished, and an impressive advisory team of presidential experts, it brings to fresh and vivid life a complex and ever-changing institution and the extraordinary men who have embodied it.”
Measuring 11" x 9" and containing 479 pages, the book is bound in full leather boards and features silk moiré endpapers, gold gilded covers, gold gilting on the page ends, and a built in silk bookmark.
