    Ronald Reagan Signed and Inscribed Book and Signed Typed Forward for Norman Rockwell's Patriotic Times, by George Mendoza with forward by President Ronald Reagan, (New York: Viking Press, 1985). Reagan inscribes the book on the title page to the author, "To George Mendoza - With great appreciation and every good wish & Very Best Regards. Ronald Reagan / Sept. 26, 1986". Included is the original Reagan signed typed forward for the book, two pages, 7" x 10.5", December 13, 1986, Washington, D.C., on embossed White House letterhead. The letter and signature are reproduced in the book. Mendoza, author of several books on the art of Norman Rockwell, chose a study of Ronald Reagan by Rockwell for the back of the book jacket. Mendoza donated his profits from the book to the Community Foundation of Greater Washington for the Nancy Reagan Drug Abuse Fund. Near very fine.
