It was copyrighted 1915 and is a first edition.
This amazing book takes a look back at politics at the turn of the century. Some of it will make you think that our politics now are tame (which is hard to believe!) Teddy Roosevelt, Taft, and others were roasted mercilessly.
This fun look back at American politics is 371 page long and includes a list of "Guests of the Club" as well as a "List Of Members".
The hardcover book has blue cloth boards with gilded titles and design on the front cover and spine. The book is in very good vintage condition. The pages are clean and minimally yellowed and the binding is tight.
The book measure 10 1/2 inches by 8 3/4 inches and is quite heavy coming in at nearly 4 pounds. It will be shipped Media Mail unless otherwise requested.
A great window into politics at the last turn of the century to those of us in the new turn of the century. Perfect for the history buff or political cartoon collector.
