This beautiful copy of the First American edition has been signed in ink on the front free endpaper: “with the best wishes of Theodore Roosevelt.”

The book is in exceptional overall condition, with bright gilt lettering and still vivid navy blue cloth, including the front cover medallion portrait. The contents are fine and unfoxed, the hinges, front and rear are beginning to give.

Laid-in at the half-title is a brief, undated, autograph letter, all in Roosevelt’s hand, on Hotel Le Marquis, New York letterhead:

“Scribner Please give bearer 2 copies of my ‘America and World War’ and charge to me. T. Roosevelt.”

There is a spot of tape shadow on the verso of the letter and on the half-title as well, where it once was affixed.

Else fine.
