    Scarce in the Dust Jacket

    Theodore Roosevelt. The Foes of Our Own Household. New York: George H. Doran Company, 1917.

    First edition. Octavo. 347 pages.

    Publisher's maroon cloth with black titles. In the scarce original printed dust jacket. Minor shelf wear to the boards. Light scattered foxing, most noticeable along the textblock edges. Offsetting to front endpapers from previously laid-in paper. Moderate wear to the dust jacket. Spine somewhat darkened. A number of abrasions to the rear panel affect some of the text. Overall, a very good copy of TR's call to arms in World War I, rarely found in the dust jacket.

    "[A] compact presentation of some of the evils in our national life for whose eradication the best thoughts and energies of our people will be necessary... The earliest chapters voice an impassioned appeal to all Americans, men, women, and children, to take up each his or her own share of the burden of the war and do whatever work is possible with zeal and efficiency. He lashes with indignation all those, 'whether Senators, Congressman, editors, or professed humanitarians,' who continue to champion Germany's cause, and tells them they are moral if not legal traitors and have no right longer to be treated as American citizens" ("Col. Roosevelt on Foes of Our Own Household", The New York Times Book Review, Sunday, October 7, 1917, p. 48).

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
