Book inscribed and signed: "To Dr. A. J. Liebmann/with regards,/Calvin Coolidge", 247 pages, 6½x9. The Autobiography of Calvin Coolidge. NY: Cosmopolitan Book Corporation, 1929. Green cloth over boards with gilt lettering to front and spine. Signed on the second flyleaf. After losing an election for School Committee in 1905, CALVIN COOLIDGE (1872-1933) never lost another one. He was Mayor of Northampton, Massachusetts (1910-1911), State Senator (1912-1915), Lieutenant Governor (1916-1918), Governor (1919-1920), Vice President (1921-1923) and President (1923-1929). "Silent Cal," as he was called for his economy of speech, succeeded to the Presidency upon the death of Warren Harding and won election to his own full term in 1924. Despite his nickname, Coolidge was very skillful at communicating through the mass media. He held more press conferences, 529, than any President before or since. His was the first inauguration carried on radio, and he gave the first Presidential radio speech. He continued to give radio speeches after leaving office, including several during the 1932 Presidential campaign. (Coolidge, who would die on January 5, 1933, had turned down requests from some Republicans to come out of retirement and run against FDR, in place of the unpopular incumbent, Herbert Hoover.) Coolidge's autobiography, completed within a year of his leaving the White House, is lauded for its concise, eloquent prose. Coolidge himself was a personal hero of President Reagan, who hung his portrait in the Cabinet Room of the White House. Binding worn. Pages lightly toned. Edges and dust jacket torn and worn. Signature light but legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
