THEODORE ROOSEVELT’S: THE NEW NATIONALISM
BOLDLY INSCRIBED TO THE NOTED BIBLIOPHILE JAMES CARLTON YOUNG, AND ONCE BELONGING TO THE FAMED DOHNEY COLLECTION
ROOSEVELT, THEODORE. (1858-1919) 26th President of the United States; Vice President under McKinley; Colonel of the Rough Riders at the Battle of San Juan Hill; recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. His book: The New Nationalism. Original vibrant red cloth covers with gold imprinted cover and spine lettering; top edge gilt. New York, NY, 1911. The Outlook Company. First edition thus. Contains thirteen speeches and one editorial by Theodore Roosevelt, with an Introduction by Ernest Hamlin Abbott. 268 pages including a historical summary (An Outlook Editorial by Lyman Abbott). Superb “Ex Libris Estelle Dohney” [Dohney was one of the great book collectors of the last century]. The bookplate affixed to back of front cover with minor offset toning from her bookplate ever-so lightly affecting Roosevelt’s inscription. Boldly inscribed by him on front free endpaper: “Inscribed for / James Carleton Young Esq. / with all good / wishes from / Theodore Roosevelt. / Sept. 26th, 1911.” With blue ¾ leather custom slipcase. From our experience, a very rare book to find inscribed and a must have for the TR or presidential book collector.
