Boston & New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1926. First Edition. cloth. Fine in a lightly soiled, Near Fine dustwrapper with a very small chip at the top front near the spine. The future President's first book, comprising the text of a lecture delivered at the Milton Academy on the Alumni War Memorial Foundation on 18 May 1926. FDR delivered this address in commemoration of fallen First World War alumni. His thesis is that the young rightly experiment with life and with moral standards, "for it is through unrest and experimentation that civilization is advanced." Of this edition, 1,000 copies were printed and Halter (T453) notes: "The book was so unsuccessful that even twenty years later it was still in print, and mint copies in perfect dust-jackets were available from the publisher. Today, however, it is definitely a scarce book."
