The Rough Riders is a unique and compelling account of perhaps the most famous regiment in American history, as told by its Lieutenant, Theodore Roosevelt himself. As such, it remains one of Roosevelt's most engaging and enduring works. The book is further collected for its numerous plates, printed from early photographs, a drawing by C.D. Gibson, and a painting by Frederic Remington, all of which add to this important historical record.
Check out our first edition printing of Theodore Roosevelt’s The Rough Riders here. It was published by Charles Scribner’s Sons in New York in 1899 and, with no surprise, was a best seller upon its release. This book has been rebound in quarter leather and tan cloth boards, with gilt tooling, titles, and raised bands to the spine.

During WWII, the government received funding directly from United States citizens in the form of war saving bonds and stamps, which were paid back later with interest. Purchasing war bonds was viewed as a way for American citizens to support the war effort. There was an outpouring of poster art on both the local and national levels for these loan programs, and we explore some of those fantastic designs in this blog.
