    Robert F. Kennedy Signed Book to Lyndon Johnson: The Enemy Within (New York: Harper & Brothers, 1960), first edition, xiv, 338 pages, green cloth with gilt, 8vo (6" x 8.5"), dust jacket, signed on the front free endpaper "To Senator Johnson With Best Wishes Bob Kennedy". This was Lyndon B. Johnson's personal copy of this book, and was originally purchased at auction in Washington, D.C. in 1963 along with other books inscribed to Johnson. There are two vintage 1960s clipped newspaper articles, about how Kennedy and Johnson didn't get along, tucked inside the back of the book . Good condition, a 2.5" tear on the front of the dust jacket has been repaired on the verso with old cellophane tape, as well as light edge wear, bottom book corners slightly bumped. Overall a nice copy with great historic association. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
