Also the Fuzziness of Hoockla Heen'. See Walker & Sisson, 59. Two pieces by Theodore Roosevelt: the inspirational 'The New Citizen', and 'The Presidency', written just before his nomination for the vice-presidency although not published earlier. The first appearance of Winston Churchill's 'On the Flank of the Army', a fictional account of escape in the Boer War. See Woods, C29. Also an article by Booker T. Washington, a dog story by Marshall Saunders, and much more. A few pages torn (although none affecting the above mentioned items) and the mailing name stamped on first page of each issue, but the interior otherwise very nice. The binding is shaken and cracked, but holding. The covers are modestly worn, but there is a two inch tear to the bottom rear exterior hinge. The date stamp on the spine is inexplicably 1903.
