From the dust jacket blurb: "Thomas witnessed his grandparents' steadfastness despite injustices, their hopefulness despite bigotry, and their deep love for their country. His own quite ambition would propel him to Holy Cross and Yale Law School, and eventually--despite a bitter, highly contested public confrontation--to the highest court in the land. In this candid and deeply moving memoir, a quintessential American tale of hardship and grit, Clarence Thomas recounts his astonishing journey for the first time, and pays homage to the man who made it possible."
Text block is tight, bright and unmarked. Justice Thomas has inscribed and signed the book at the top of the title page. There is a small (1/8") spot at the upper corner of the front free end paper and a slight thumb smudge on the rear free end paper. Black paper over boards with Harper logo embossed at the lower corner; quarter-bound in black paper with bright gilt title on the spine.
The unclipped dust jacket ($26.95) has slight shelf wear at the corners and there is a 1/2" scratch on the rear panel towards the bottom near the fold for the flap, not affecting any text. The jacket is now protected in a clear archival Brodart sleeve. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing.
