THE NEW FREEDOM. A CALL FOR THE EMANCIPATION OF THE GENEROUS ENERGIES OF A PEOPLE. Woodrow WILSON.

THE NEW FREEDOM. A CALL FOR THE EMANCIPATION OF THE GENEROUS ENERGIES OF A PEOPLE

New York & Garden City: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1913. First Edition. Hardcover. SIGNED by the author as President on the half-title page and dated by him "29 July, 1913," less than 5 months into his first term. An important book by Wilson, though as he explains in the preface, not actually written by him but rather a compilation of excerpts from his campaign speeches. Wilson successfully used "The New Freedom" as a campaign slogan in the 1912 presidential election, with a focus on progressive reforms of tariffs, business, and banking. A letter on White House stationery from the Secretary to the President forwarding the book is included. Books autographed by Wilson are rather uncommon; those signed as President are scarce. Bookplate of Louis Barton Torrey on the front pastedown. Housed in a red cloth clamshell box. Paperclip indentation to first few pages; spine and covers with some staining and soiling, corners slightly bumped. Very Good, lacking the scarce dustwrapper but in a Fine clamshell box.
