ROOSEVELT, FRANKLIN DELANO. 1882-1945.
The Budget of the United States Government for the Fiscal Year Ending June 30, 1941. Washington: United States Government Printing Office, 1940. 4to. Half morocco over green cloth. Wear at head and tail of spine, corners bumped.

Signed on p. xvi by Roosevelt. The “Budget Message of the President” at the beginning of this volume gives an overview of the economic history of the United States during the Roosevelt administration, including a justification for New Deal policies and an explanation for the allocations for 1941. The largest portion of the pie, $1.8 billion, is for defense, with work relief programs coming in just below at $1.3 billion. Interestingly, Roosevelt only obliquely refers to “the current world situation” in his paragraph justifying the defense buildup.
Provenance: The estate of Harold D. Smith, Director of the U.S. Bureau of the Budget, 1939-1946.
