From the library of Sara Delano Roosevelt, the mother of FDR, with her signature and date of 1891 on top right of both title-pages. Mrs. Roosevelt was a strong-willed woman who took charge of every aspect of raising her only son, and she would prove to be a dominating force throughout FDR’s life until her death in 1941, just months before the bombing of Pearl Harbor. In the year this book was signed, young FDR and his mother began a series of trips to the Rineland spa of Bad Nauheim, Germany, seeking treatment of his father’s ailing heart.
