Theodore Roosevelt's Letters to His Children Edited by Joseph Bucklin Bishop

$40.50 $45.00

This is a rare collectible hardcover, no dust jacket as originally published. It is a second printing, 1919 Charles Scribner Publishing. This copy is very good, very clean inside with light natural tanning to pages from age. There is some foxing inside front and back cover but pages are just showing natural tanning. The binding is tight and straight with only a very moderate amount of loosening from spine but all pages tight in binding. Green cloth boards very good with light wear at corners but given age very good condition.
There is a notation from prev. owner neatly written inside front cover (see last photo of listing ) no other marks or writing seen.

This collection of letters from the 26th President was an immediate bestseller when published in 1919. Published shortly after his death, the letters were written between 1898-1911. They show Roosevelt as a devoted father and included inside are hand sketches by Roosevelt that reveal how close and how encouraging he was to his children. Letter topics range from a cougar and a lynx hunt, dogs that climb trees, the pig named Maude, advice and news, Thanksgiving in the White House, a White House Christmas and more. A true collectible for any Roosevelt or history fan.
