Condition: Hardcover, no dust jacket. Cover boards have minor to moderate scuffing, edge wear, corners a bit bumped. Interior is clean and unmarked, and binding remains firm.

wiki: "William Jennings Bryan (March 19, 1860 – July 26, 1925) was an American lawyer, orator and politician. Beginning in 1896, he emerged as a dominant force in the Democratic Party, running three times as the party's nominee for President of the United States in the 1896, 1900, and the 1908 elections. He served in the House of Representatives from 1891 to 1895 and as the Secretary of State under Woodrow Wilson. Because of his faith in the wisdom of the common people, Bryan was often called "The Great Commoner", and because of his rhetorical power and early fame as the youngest presidential candidate, "The Boy Orator."
