Tight, clean, attractive first edition of this novel involving Theodore Roosevelt, William Randolph Hearst and turn-of-the-century America. Interesting and appropriate autograph addition: Tipped to the front flyleaf is an actual library catalogue card for this title and edition (though not this specific copy, which is NOT ex-library!), heavy stock 5" X 3" card, signed boldly by Vidal in black ballpoint.
