Inscribed copy of Stonewall Jackson’s Way for a Washington socialite

Description

Signed book: Stonewall Jackson’s Way. Limited edition of 200. Cedar Rapids, Iowa: The Torch Press, 1915. Hardcover, 6.75 x 9.25, 7 pages. Signed and inscribed on the first free end page, “To Aunt Jobiska from her devoted nephew Theodore Roosevelt, Sept 13th 1916.” Above Roosevelt’s signature is a presentation inscription to him from the owner of the original manuscript, “Hon. Theodore Roosevelt, With regards of W.K. Bixby, St. Louis 12/16/15.” Autographic condition: very good to fine, with light soiling to signed page, dampstaining to edges, and overall feathering to Roosevelt’s signature and inscription. Book condition: G+/None. “Aunt Jobiska” is a reference to a fictional character in ‘The Pobble Who Has No Toes,’ a nonsensical poem written by English poet Edward Lear in 1877. Roosevelt had used this as a nickname for Mrs. Ralph Cross Johnson, a prominent Washingtonian and patron of the arts. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
