The Mayor Who Mastered New York: The Life and Opinions of William J. Gaynor

NY: Morrow, 1969. First First edition. Cloth, 516 pps. with index, bibliography. Biography of early 20th century New York City mayor William J. Gaynor. Though largely forgotten today, Gaynor was a highly respected judge, extraordinary mayor (1909-1913) and--but for an assassin's bullet (which he survived)--might have become President. Fascinating look not only at the man but at the city and times in which he lived. A tight copy, light dampstaining at the base of the spine; in crisp dust jacket with some slight evidence of moisture. Very acceptable withal. Very Good Cloth (Item ID: D1020)
