Each volume is uniformly signed by the author on the half-title pages.
First edition of the author's Pulitzer Prize-winning volume in his acclaimed Johnson biography quartet. Octavo, original black cloth. Inscribed by the author, "To Nicholas Katzenbach with deep appreciation for the help you have given me in understanding Lyndon Johnson Robert A. Caro November 8, 2004." The recipient was Nicolas Katzenbach, who served as Attorney General under the Lyndon Johnson Administration. An outstanding association copy. "Master of the Senate and its two preceding volumes are the highest expression of biography as art. After The Path to Power and Means of Ascent, there shouldn't be much debate about Caro's grand achievement, but let's be clear about this nonetheless: In terms of political biography, not only does it not get better than this, it can't" (Patrick Beach).
