Henry P. Davision: The Record of a Useful Life
New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers 1933 - 8vo., green boards and cloth lettered in gilt; top edge gilt; tender front hinge. First edition, first printing. A presentation copy, inscribed: "Elihu Root from Thomas W. Lamont, June 1933," on the front endpaper. ---- The recipient, Elihu Root, who served as both secretary of war and secretary of state, received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1912. Meanwhile Lamont worked closely with the preeminent banker Henry P. Davison, even serving as the director of Davison's bank. The work accomplished during Davison's tenure as president of the American Red Cross drew Root and Lamont's admiration. Featured in "Time Magazine" (1929), Lamont was a chief agent for the Morgan investments abroad and served as an unofficial mentor to the Wilson, Hoover, and Roosevelt administrations. Both Lamont and Root served on the board of Andrew Carnegie's central philanthropic organization. At the close of "Henry P. Davison," Lamont quoted Root as saying post-war world "rests with the young men, youth to youth, young heart to young heart." A compelling presentation copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
