Harrisburg, PA: The Telegraph Press, [September] 1935. Textured red cloth, lettered in black. Frontis, facsimile and plates by 'Cleanthe'.

Item #WRCLIT85565
First edition of the Kingfish's posthumously published fictionalized projection of events after his imagined victory in the Presidential race of 1936. Former Governor, then Senator Long was assassinated on September 10th, the same month that saw publication of this work. A brief and likely hastily composed Foreword serves as a justification of its posthumous publication. The ownership inscription on the front free endsheet signifies an early purchase, as it is dated at "Oak Park Ill 9/24/35." Uncommon in dust jacket.
