[light shelfwear to bottom edge, slight bumping to top rear corner; jacket sunned at spine, light edgewear and scuffing]. "This book, by a former New York city magistrate, is in part the inspiring story of his own life; in part a vivid record of the city he has loved; in part an account of the Fusion Administration, embodying perhaps the most revealing portrait of Fiorello H. LaGuardia ever written. It tells of a career unusual for its variety and constant interest, unique for its inception and meaning. For Judge Isaacs, on graduating from the College of the City of New York, had taken the Ephebic Oath, pledging himself to good citizenship and service -- and meaning what he swore." (Sounds like today's politicians could use a good swift dose of that.)
