Signed book: The Rise and Growth of American Politics by Henry Jones Ford. First edition. NY: Macmillan, 1898. Hardcover bound in red cloth with gilt spine titling, 5.5 x 7.5, 409 pages. Signed on the title page in ink, "Woodrow Wilson," and on the front pastedown, "Woodrow Wilson, 1898." Affixed to the first free end page is a letter to Wilson by the author, March 7, 1899, in part: "Thank you so much for your kind letter, which is particularly gratifying as coming from a distinguished specialist in the field of political science. Your works are familiar to me and I have studied them with interest and profit. I have them all in my library, the flyleaves covered by memoranda of notes and ideas suggested by passages thereā€¦It seems to me that we need a constitutional history which shall account for our politics as they are. Perhaps I may be allowed to say that I have thought that you are the man to give us such a work." Autographic condition: very good to fine, with irregular toning to the signed pastedown. Book condition: VG/None, with toning to endpapers, wear at spine ends, and a "Library of Lawrence E. Miller" blindstamp to a rear page. Accompanied by a modern slipcase. From the collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
