The tipped in slip indicating that specially printed versions of the lithographs were separately available, limited to one hundred numbered copies, is not present in this copy.

        Third Presidential Cruise of the U. S.S. Houston, 1938

      N.p.: Printed on board the U.S.S. Houston, 1938 - The very scarce printed memorial, printed on board the ship, of FDR's Third Presidential Cruise on the USS Houston, from the July 14 to August 9, 1938, on his way to the Galapagos Islands (FDR was the first U.S. President to visit them). In the introduction to the booklet, one of the editors records that "Shortly after the cruise commenced certain members of the HOUSTON personnel conceived the idea of publishing a book which would relate graphically all of the interesting incidents happening on board our ship - We trust that the following pages will keep alive fond memories of a happy cruise with as grand a shipmate it has ever been our privilege to meet." There are numerous photos of Roosevelt with the crew and the Presidential party, shots of the Galapagos and its strange fauna, and a good deal of wit and raillery in the text and photos directed toward the "pollywogs" on the part of the "shellbacks" in anticipation of the approaching traditional ceremony of "crossing the line." The ship called at Cocos Island and the log records successful sport fishing for sailfish in those waters. The U.S.S. Houston was sunk during the war. A wonderfully light-hearted and very scarce piece for the FDR collector, at a time when the clouds of a world war were gathering on the horizon (ROOSEVELT, FRANKLIN D.) 4to. Illustrated from photographs by R.B. Thompson. 75 pp. Original printed wrappers, printed in gold. Fine copy, in custom blue cloth clamshell box. OCLC 11563735 (3 copies); not in Halter [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS): "Even as Sherman's hordes struck at the gates of Atlanta in a long-past July, so do the hordes of summer visitors invade us this month

      Atlanta, GA, 11 July 1938. Letter. Normal mailing creases. Fine with the original typed envelope. Fine single-spaced 2-1/2-page letter of @800 words with an 18-word holograph postscript on Mitchell's stationery to Herschel Brickell, a noted book reviewer from Mississippi who served on the New York Herald Tribune book section and who, at the time of this correspondence, was a reviewer for the New York Evening Post. Mitchell begins by stating how happy she is to be back home: "One of the most welcome sights I ever saw was the bright blaze of the mid-afternoon Georgia sun.... I must be like Georgia cotton--need red dirt and hot, dry weather." She also writes a poignant paragraph about her husband staying behind to comfort a friend who had just lost his wife: "I can't help wondering how people manage to live through such things." She concludes with her disgust at being famous: "Even as Sherman's hordes struck at the gates of Atlanta in a long-past July, so do the hordes of summer visitors invade us this month.... Father summed it up when he remarked on how strange it was that there were millions of people anxious to go where they were not wanted and were not invited." Her manuscript postscript mentions how she lost her copyright case in the Dutch court and is appealing. SIGNED "Margaret" in ink by Mitchell. All of the letters to Brickell that we have seen were signed by Mitchell either as "Margaret" or as "M," an indication of the personal relationship she had with him. Not in Richard Harwell's MARGARET MITCHELL'S "GONE WITH THE WIND" LETTERS, though many others to Brickell are.
