A Puritan in Babylon: The Story of Calvin Coolidge


1 in stock


Hardcover, bound in genuine deep red leather with real 22 kt gold decoration. 460 pages. All edges gilt, silk ribbon marker sewn-in, raised spine. Index. Two-page broad-side Collector’s Notes from The Library of the Presidents laid-in loose. First edition thus. A well written and thoroughly researched biography of America’s 30th president, affectionately known by the sobriquet “Silent Cal”. Reticent and puritanical, his two term presidency occupied nearly the whole of the roaring 20’s, an era which wholeheartedly rejected the values he stood for. In spite of this his popularity remained unprecedented among an electorate who weighs their leadership harshly. No previous ownership marks. A clean, fresh, unmarked and like new copy. As new.
