Edith Wilson

A signed limited edition of Edith Bolling Wilson's memoirs. 

Book Signed, "Edith Bolling Wilson" on the limitation page of her autobiography, My Memoir (Indianapolis: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1939), 386 pp., 8vo, bound in purple boards with gilt-titled spine and adorned with her initials in gilt on the front cover. Housed in the original purple box. Boards bear some slight rubbing at corners, pages very clean. Outer box damp stained with scuffs and other abrasions. Fair box, fine book.


A limited edition of 1,000 copies was printed in 1939, each signed by the former First Lady, who some argue was essentially the acting President of the United States following Wilson's stroke in October 1919. Wilson has added the number of this volume, "69" and adding that she had "Inscribed" the volume, "by request for Florence Allan Eckscher".
