Felix Frankfurter: A Tribute - 1964 Inscribed by Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter

Mendelson, Wallace, editor

New York

Reynal & Company



Black cloth, dust jacket. First Edition.

Inscribed by the 82 year-old Frankfurter on flyleaf in a shaky hand: "With cordial regards and best wishes, Felix Frankfurter, July 7, 1964". An anthology by 17 famed contributors praising the renowned Supreme Court Justice, who had retired from the Court when he suffered a stroke after 24 years on the bench. More rarely found inscribed by Frankfurter than any of the half dozen books he himself authored, as he died six months after publication.
