Notes

First and only edition. A superb association copy, inscribed by President Roosevelt to his son John A. Roosevelt: "For John A. Roosevelt from his affectionate father Franklin D. Roosevelt". John accompanied his father during the presidential trip aboard the schooner, where they fished for tuna and cod. The sojourn was a brief break following Franklin's re-nomination for president, and before the 1936 election campaign began in earnest. The book was printed for private distribution (not at government expense), with no copies for sale. It is a great rarity: in institutional holdings, only the Library of Congress and the Dutch Maritime Library copies are known; at auction, only two other copies are known to have appeared (both also presentation copies).
