Magnificently signed Volume I of the limited Alumni Edition set of Wilsonʼs A History of the American People, with two additional unsigned volumes

Thomas Woodrow Wilson, 18561924.  28th President of the United States, 19131921.  Volume I of Wilson's treatise History of the American People, boldly signed, Volume I of   Woodrow Wilson.  With unsigned Volumes II and III.

This is # 25 of 350 sets of the special limited Alumni Edition of Wilsonʼs five-volume A History of the American People, which Harper & Brothers published in 1902.  Wilson has signed with a beautiful, bold blue fountain pen signature on the back of the title page.

This set contains the first three books of the set:  Volume I, "The Swarming of the English"; Volume II, "Colonies and Nation"; and Volume III, "The Founding of the Government."  Each volume is lavishly illustrated with portraits of famous personalities, maps, plans, and—attractively for historical autograph collectors—facsimiles of handwriting and signatures of a litany of notable figures beginning with Christopher Columbus and continuing with British monarchs such as Elizabeth I, Charles I, and Charles II, colonial leaders such as Myles Standish, William Bradford, and Roger Williams, and early American leaders such as John Hancock, George Washington, and James Madison. 

The deckle-edged books are bound in white cloth and gray boards, without dust jackets.  The binding on Volume I is slightly separated at the bottom, there is a small damp stain spot on the spine of Volume II, and all three volumes have some soiling on the covers and old pencil notations on the front free endpapers.  Overall, the bindings are acceptably tight and the books are in good to very good condition. 

Because Volumes IV and V are missing, this set is attractively priced.  We have found complete five-volume sets priced as high as $2,995.
