About This Item

London: Charles Tilt, 1839. Tilt's Hand-Books for Children. Cloth. Very good. From the personal library of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, the Little Picture Bible and New Testament by Isabella Child, signed by Eleanor Roosevelt.. Miniature book (3" x 2.5"), 191pp, [1p ads]; [1]-191pp, [1p ads]. Green cloth, title on spine in gilt, spine recased with cloth laid down. Two volumes bound together in this publication. Frontispiece portrait with tissue cover, numerous full page illustrations. Bookplate on front endpaper from "Library of Franklin D. Roosevelt, No. 1373." Signed by Eleanor Roosevelt on front free endpaper, with her initials and FDR. She initialed numerous copies for provenance before the 1951 Hammer Galleries Auction. President Franklin Roosevelt was an avid collector of miniature books, a hobby which began in the 1920s and continued throughout his presidency. A complete list of his collection does not exist, since the books were located at the White House, Hyde Park and Campobello Island. After his death in 1945, his collection was divided up between members of the family and the National Park Service at Hyde Park. The first part of the collection was sold at auction in 1951 by Hammer Galleries of New York. At the estate sale for Eleanor Roosevelt in 1964, additional miniature books were sold at auction. (The Microbibliophile, Volume XXXVII, Number 1, Issue 211, January 2018).
