1 NIXON, RICHARD Real Peace - A Strategy For the West
New York Privately Printed 1983 
First Edition. Limited to 1000 copies. Signed in full by Nixon in blue ink. Actor Randolph Scott's copy, with an original Typed Letter Signed from Nixon (signed in blue ink “Dick”) on Nixon's personal stationery in which he presents the book to Scott. “October 10, 1983. Mr. Randolph Scott. Dear Randy, This is one of 1000 copies of the private, limited edition of Real Peace: A Strategy for the West. Copies are being sent to a select group of government officials and opinion leaders in the United States and abroad. Little Brown and Company will publish and distribute the book in the United States and Canada in January 1984. I trust it may contribute to a better understanding of where we have been, where we are, and where we should go in our relations with the Soviet Union, China, Japan, Europe, and the Third World. With warm regards. Sincerely, Dick.” Fine in a near fine dust jacket with slight fading to spine and one short tear. Randolph Scott was a noted Hollywood actor of the Golden Age best remembered for a series of sophisticated westerns. Randolph Scott has recently received a great deal of attention with the release and restoration of Seven Men from Now (1956) directed by Budd Boetticher and produced by John Wayne which has been unavailable for decades, and the restoration and release on DVD of Ride the High Country (1962) directed by Sam Peckinpah, both of which are considered among the great classics of western film. Nixon was an admirer of Scott's films and he and Scott were long time friends. Nixon invited Scott to the White House to visit. When the Apollo Eleven astronauts first landed on the moon, Scott was Nixon's guest at the dinner Nixon held in Los Angeles to honor the astronauts return. An excellent association copy.
