VROOMAN, Julia Scott
The High Road to Honor
NY, Minton, Balch & Company, (1924). An association copy of this political novel. Inscribed by the author to her publisher: "To my good friend and gallant publisher/ Mr. Minton/ head of the joint stock company of Minton, Balch, Mathilde, & me -- and the only Republican in it -- what might be called a hapless minority! -- Julia Scott Vrooman/ New York/ Sept 12/ 24." Mathilde is the name of the book's protagonist, a progressive D.C. political wife. Vrooman's husband was Assistant Secretary of Agriculture under Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, and her uncle was Adlai Stevenson I, the Vice-President under Grover Cleveland, another Democrat. This title was reissued as a signed limited edition the following year; signed copies of the trade edition are rare. This copy is stamped "Sample Copy" on all edges of the text block and is very good, lacking the dust jacket. A wonderful association -- inscribed by the author to her publisher. [#034476] SOLD
