A combined effort between the Washington Post and the Gravure Company of America, this ornately elegant tome measures a colossal 16-1/2" x 20-1/4" and was clearly produced at tremendous expense. Offered is the 1901 McKinley Memorial Edition, which begins with the famous Gilbert Stuart portrait of Washington and ends with the then-recently fallen William McKinley. Each portrait remains protected by its onion-skin overlay. A beautiful bookplate on the inside front cover is numbered 556, dated to 1905, and listed with the recipient as one Thomas E. Grover. VG-EX condition overall with a tight spine and an intact presidential seal on the front cover.
