About this Item: Wilfred Funk, Inc, New York, 1940. xx, 252 pp. 8vo. First edition. First edition. xx, 252 pp. 8vo. JFK's First Book, Inscribed to Newsman Arthur Krock. The first edition of John F. Kennedy's first book, inscribed to Arthur Krock: "To Mr. Krock. Who Baptized, Christened, and was Best Man for this book - with my sincere thanks, Jack Kennedy." Arthur Krock (1886-1974), the "Dean of Washington Newsmen," was Washington correspondent and bureau chief for the New York Times and wrote the "In the Nation" column. He was a close friend and political ally of Joe Kennedy and his children. He advised John F. Kennedy with the revisions of his 1939 senior honors paper, "Appeasement in Munich," in preparation for its publication the following year. It was Krock who suggested the new title, Why England Slept, a response to Churchill's While England Slept. Krock would continue to advise the young Kennedy, who thanked him In the Preface to Profiles in Courage. Ted Kennedy wrote admiringly of Krock in his tribute volume to his father: "Mr. Krock has long been one of the most respected newsmen and columnists in Washington. He was won two Pulitzer Prizes for his work. He met Dad [Joseph Kennedy] during the New Deal years and won his deep admiration. Mr. Krock advised President Kennedy in the writing of his first book, Why England Slept, and has been a source of valued help to my brothers and myself" (Edward Kennedy, The Fruitful Bough: A Tribute to Joseph P. Kennedy, p. 112). [With:] As We Remember Joe. Edited by John F. Kennedy. Privately Printed: Cambridge, Mass, 1945. First edition, second issue. Original burgundy cloth. Fine copy.
