Bound in original publishers hardbound full colour pictorial binding with off-white spine over brown boards. Top edges trimmed and gilt, other edges untrimmed. Comes with a protective hard plastic transparent sleeve.

The full title reads: "The Philippines. An account of their people and condition by mrs. Campbell Dauncey with special contributions by the hon. William Howard Taft and the hon. Theodore Roosevelt". The long chapters by Roosevelt (U.S. President between 1901-1909) and Taft (his successor, 1910-1913) explain why the Americans should be interested in the Philippines and what they have reached in this country. With widest possible margins; sides untrimmed, top edge gilt. Spine slightly sunned and scuffed, otherwise in very good condition. Interior clean, near fine and hardly without any markings. Very uncommon. A lovely volume.
