Original 1960 trade paperback edition of Kennedy's foreign policy speeches and statements edited by historian Allan Nevins. "From the Library of Gore Vidal" stamped on hald title-page. The same page bears the blindstamp of "Edgewater - Barrytown, New York" - the historic home where Vidal lived. One of Vidal's own books from his time at Edgewater while running for Congress in 1960. In 1966, Vidal rented the estate to an aide of Robert F. Kennedy. Light wear to edges and folds with some minor spots of paper loss.
