The Democratic Book 1936 [cover title]

[Philadelphia?]: (Democratic National Committee?), [1937?]. First Edition. Color and b&w illustrations, ads. Softcover. Folio. 384 pages. Very Good-. Pictorial paper covers with some rubs, moderate creases, and other edge wear. Closed tears to cover near head and heel of spine. Interior clean and sound. Still a handsome and sturdy copy.

A souvenir book recapping President Roosevelt's victory and Democrat gains in the 1936 national election. Contains campaign speeches, profiles of candidates and cabinet members, records of accomplishment for departments in Roosevelt's first term, and much more. The printing herein of Roosevelt's address to the New York Democratic State Convention at Syracuse on September 29, 1936 is likely its first publication in permanent form, according to FDR bibliographer Ernest J. Halter. Copies of this book (not to be confused with the very similar souvenir titled "The Democratic National Convention 1936") were rebound in leather to produce a limited edition that was signed by President Roosevelt and presented to donors and other friends (see HALTER T119).
