Looking Forward
John Day, 1933 One of ten deluxe copies only, prepared for presentation by the publisher and FDR. The publisher, in addition to the first trade edition, published a deluxe edition in a different format of 100 copies only, all numbered. Copies 11 through 100 were for sale. Copies 1 through 10 were not for sale. This is copy 10, one of the first 10 copies explicitly (according to the colophon page) not for sale. Differs from the first trade edition in many ways, including gold gilt on top edge and beveled boards. Also, strangely, the deluxe edition is a smaller format than the trade edition, although it has all the same content. Housed in a custom-made collector slipcase. Needless to say, deluxe one of ten copies of significant books by US Presidents are very uncommon. This is an early title by FDR, articles and speeches before he became President, and published just when he started his first term. Issued without a dust jacket. We have seen only one other copy of this presentation edition, and it was inscribed by FDR.
