Frankfurter's address on September 30, 1942 at the inauguration of the president of City College of New York (Frankfurter graduated from CCNY in 1902). 16 unnumbered pages in wrappers.

Warmly inscribed to Dr. Thomas "TJ" Jones: "Dear T. J.;This owes more to you than it reveals -- and it goes with the cordial good wishes; regards of Felix Frankfurter"

Jones was a British civil servant and educationalist, once described as "one of the six most important men in Europe". First appointed as assistant secretary (later Deputy Secretary) to the Cabinet in December 1916 by David Lloyd George, Jones served as Deputy Secretary to the Cabinet for nearly twenty years and under four different Prime Ministers. He was much involved in the negotiations which led to the celebrated Anglo-Irish treaty of 1921 and the industrial troubles of the 1920s which culminated in the General Strike of May 1926. Jones also accompanied Lloyd George on his famous visit to Hitler in 1936 and was one of the founders of the Gregynog Press in 1923.

A scarce publication even unsigned: OCLC lists only four copies. Wrappers unevenly toned, consistent wear to yapped edges. Overall very good.
