    Description

    William McKinley: Signed Presentation Book of His Speeches. Doubleday & McClure published this book in 1900. It is: "Speeches and Addresses of William McKinley from March 1, 1897 to May 1, 1900." Interestingly, it was owned by President McKinley himself. He has inscribed it to his Adjutant General on the blank flyleaf: " To Maj Gen H. C. Corbin with cordial regards, William McKinley Oct. 16, 1900." The 388-page book is beautifully bound in leather and marbled boards. The spine is ribbed with gilt-stamped title and three thistles, perhaps an illusion to McKinley's Scotch-Irish heritage. The marbled endpaper preceding the presentation page is missing.
