Washington: U.S. Gov. Printing Office, . First Edition Small octavo (5-1/2" x 7-1/2") bound in flexible blue morocco leather lettered in gilt (including Coolidge's name at the bottom right) and decorated in gilt with stars in the corners and the Presidential coat-of-arms in the center. With a printed title page but the 19 text pages mimeographed rather than printed on paper with three holes in the gutter margin. Obviously a very limited production likely printed for Coolidge's personal use, and quite possibly unique. OCLC does not record any printed copy of this speech though it lists about 70 others. Given the same day as the 1927 State of the Union address, this speech was given to a much smaller, more selective audience. In the audience was William Butler, a Massachusetts Senator who was Coolidge's campaign manager and the Republican Party Chairman. This is his copy and is INSCRIBED and SIGNED to him by the President two days before Coolidge left office: "To Honorable William M. Butler,/In appreciation of a long and/faithful friendship/ Calvin Coolidge, /The White House,/March 1 1929." In the third sentence of his speech Coolidge acknowledges Butler: "Both the primary and the election were under the immediate direction of the present Chairman, William M. Butler." In his AUTOBIOGRAPHY, Coolidge remarks: "The campaign was magnificently managed by William M. Butler." Two minor text corrections in ink, likely by Coolidge. Fine and exceptionally scarce item with a superb association (Item ID: 013152)
