Original wrappers. Minor creasing to spine and wrappers.

FIRST EDITION, ONE OF 130 RECALLED ADVANCE COPIES, with manuscript corrections by the publisher on pp 36, 158 and 269 and canceled leaf 141/142. The publisher bound 130 copies in wrappers from the total of 3000 and sent them out to reviewers on March 10, 1933. One copy was received at the White House and several significant errors were discovered. The publisher acquiesced to the President and sent telegrams to each of the reviewers recalling the books. Only about 10 were not sent back. The remaining 120, as here, were re-issued with manuscript deletions and inserted leaves. See Ernest J. Halter, Collecting First Editions of Franklin Roosevelt, 1949.
