Small 4to. Blue cloth with gilt lettering, dust jacket. 180pp, (32pp). Illustrations. Fine/very good. Mild jacket edgewear and rubbing. First and likely sole printing of this family history and genealogy. The first New Orleans Lemanns were mid-19th century German immigrants who set up a saddlery business there. This copy bears a fine autograph addition: The front flyleaf is boldly inscribed and signed in black ink "For Adlai E. Stevenson 3d -- / As a textbook for the discharge of / his godfatherly duties, with the / affectionate greetings of / Stephen B. Lemann / New Orleans, La., April 3, 1965." Lemann (1930-95) was a Harvard classmate of Adlai III (the future U.S. Senator and son of the Illinois governor and twice presidential candidate) and an attorney and newspaperman who wielded considerable political influence in New Orleans; he was an alternate delegate to the 1956 Democratic National Convention, which of course chose Governor Stevenson as their presidential candidate.
