About this Item

The Macmillan Company, New York. 1938. Hardcover. Inscribed by the author on the title page in flowing handwriting on November 18, 1938 at Emporia, Kansas. Stated 3rd Printing. Book Condition: Good; considerable pencil underlining throughout the book with occasional marginal notes; ghost image on rear board; light soiling on front board; age browning of pages; magazine photo of Mr. White pasted to back of FFFP. No DJ. Linen cloth boards and spine with black lettering and bands on spine and lettering only on front board. 460 pp. This book is William Allen White¿s 1938 biography of the 30th U.S. President. White was the owner and editor of the Emporia Gazette, a leader of the Progressive movement, a political commentator and author. At first glance White¿s book appears to be a comprehensive biography of Calvin Coolidge, but it quickly proves more a review of the economic and political climate of Coolidge¿s era. And to the extent this is a book about Coolidge and not merely his times, it is more a character study than a pure biography. White¿s book often exudes the aura of a great work built upon significant research. But coming so soon after Coolidge¿s death it appears to have been restrained by the limited number of sources available at the time¿and, seemingly, by White¿s own biases. A good copy for study/research but quite rare with White's autograph. Bookseller Inventory # 003277
