Minimum Bid: $2,500.00

Limited edition of Truman’s Address at the Conference on the Japanese Peace Treaty, which he delivered on September 4, 1951. Quarter leather-bound hardcover, 6.5 x 9.5, 12 pages, numbered 6/60. Signed and inscribed as president on the first free end page in black ink, “To Hon. John W. Snyder, with every good wish for a happy Christmas, Harry S. Truman, Dec 25, 1951.” In fine condition.

Truman’s ratification of the Japanese Peace Treaty in San Francisco concluded what the president called, “a bitter and costly war.” The historic event was commemorated via this seldom-encountered publication, with this example presented by Truman to Snyder, a longtime friend who served in the Army Reserve with the president during World War I, and then later as US Secretary of the Treasury during the Truman administration. In that position, Snyder was responsible for establishing a stable economy in the mid-1940s. A desirable World War II-related short-run book presented to one of the postwar architects. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
