    John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy Book Signed. Profiles in Courage, by John Kennedy. New York: Harper & Brothers, [1955]. First edition, 8vo, signed on the title page by JFK, "Warm regards/ John Kennedy", and about 2" below, RFK has signed "Robert Kennedy". JFK was a senator when he authored the book, which profiled the bravery and integrity of eight U. S. senators. One year later, after becoming a best seller, it won the Pulitzer Prize. Allegations soon surfaced that much of the book was written by one of Kennedy's speechwriters. The binding is well-worn with the owner's signature and his rubber-stamp impressions on the front free endpaper. This rare example of the two Kennedy brothers' signatures together is very desirable and in fine condition. Ex. Charles Hamilton. From the John K. Lattimer Collection.
