About this Item

New York: Henry Holt, 1894. Octavo, original brick-red publisher's cloth stamped in black and gold, enclosed in folding cloth chemise and matching custom slip case of quarter red morocco. [iv], 417 pages, plus 1 leaf of ads at back. Spine rubbed and faded, and binding a little cocked, but still very good overall. Bookplate. First Edition, first issue, with Stirling misspelled "Sterling" on front cover and spine. BAL #6206. The author's first novel, chronicling the rise and progress of an ideal statesman, resisting the intrigues and corruptions of American politics and defending the "American Ideal." Ford had difficulty finding a publisher initially, and when it was finally published it languished for several months until the rumor that it was the idealized story of President Cleveland's career began to spread, and the book became a best seller.
