Catalogue Note

A superb presentation copy, inscribed by Franklin D. Roosevelt as President, to his son John

Roosevelt's three sons—Franklin Jr., James, and John—were all present on the cruise, where the party fished for tuna and cod, etc.  The inscription from Roosevelt to his youngest child reads: "For John A. Roosevelt | from his affectionate father | Franklin D. Roosevelt".

A wonderful association copy
