Listing Details

To students of FDR and American history of the 1930s, Louis Howe is a very important figure. FDRs alter-ego in some respects - Howe was somewhat akin to FDRs James Carville as was a cigar smoking, somewhat socially awkward who was the architect of all of his political campaigns and was also an important advisor. It is well known, for example, that Eleanor detested Howe. This First Edition Presentation copy was given to Eleanor Roosevelt by the author and inscribed on the front free endpaper as follows: All good wishes Lela Stiles April 27, 1954. The book has the original dust jack which retains bright original coloring but has some minor chipping, mostly by the extreme top and bottom edges. The binding itself is tight and the book may never have been read as the book itself is in simply immaculate condition. Published in Cleveland by World Publishing Company in 1954. 8vo.


1954   Stiles, Lela. The Man Behind Roosevelt.
