Signed book: Fear God and Take Your Own Part. First edition. NY: George H. Doran Company, 1916. Hardcover with custom-made slipcase, 6.5 x 8.75, 414 pages. Signed in fountain pen on a White House card affixed to the first free end page. Also included is an AQS from Julia Ward Howe on a tipped in page, dated March 1891, which contains a line from her song 'Battle Hymn of the Republic, in full: "In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born, across the sea." In very good to fine condition, with a block of toning to the card.

Roosevelt dedicated Fear God and Take Your Own Part to the memory of Julia Ward Howe, whom he declared ‘was as good a citizen of the Republic as Washington and Lincoln themselves... She preached that stern and lofty courage of soul which shrinks neither from war nor from any other form of suffering and hardship and danger if it is only thereby that justice can be served. She embodied that trait more essential than any other in the make-up of the men and women of this Republic—the valor of righteousness.’
