President Theodore Roosevelt was one of the most dynamic people of his generation. As the  twenty-sixth president of the United States, he established numerous antitrust laws. He created necessary regulations on corporations. He supported the Conservation Movement with the founding of many national parks and monuments. For these achievements, most historical lenses look back flatteringly on his presidency. Yet it is also worth noting that he expanded the problematic practices of colonialism on the American continent and abroad. Prior to the presidency, Roosevelt was also the police commissioner then governor of New York, the leader of the Rough Riders (the famous U.S. cavalry regiment in the Spanish-American War), and a cattle rancher. He was awarded the Medal of Honor and the Nobel Peace Prize and he appears on Mount Rushmore. Somehow in the midst of such a full life he was also able to write numerous books. In A Book-Lover’s Holidays in the Open, he provides several chapters recounting his outdoorsmen adventures. It is one of several texts that solidified yet another one of his legacies, that of the Great American Outdoorsmen.

This uniform edition volume is in very good condition. In the original faux leather boards, very good with only minor rubbing to edges. Handsomely framed with Bull Moose emblem to front board. Text block near fine, only hinge at front gathering very slightly showing. This is one annual volume of the reprinted uniform edition set.

A very good vintage copy of Teddy Roosevelt’s A Book-Lover’s Holidays in the Open.
