RARE ORIGINAL CARBON COPY OF A WORKING MANUSCRIPT FOR THE BOOK 'AMERICAN INDIVIDUALISM' BY HERBERT HOOVER TOGETHER WITH A 1922 FIRST EDITION COPY OF THE BOOK. Some text differences indicate the manuscript to have been written prior to the first publication of his book on American Individualism in 1922 as can be viewed by Hoover's commenting on the war in present tense in the manuscript ('Our conduct in this war stands out as no other period in history for the universality of our service to our neighbors'--page 6 in the manuscript) and in past tense in the book ('The war itself in its last stages was a conflict of social philosophies'--page 1 in the book). Certainly the book was influenced by the manuscript as can be viewed by the similarity of the text including verbatim text in both the speech and the book such as 'Our individualism is rooted in our very nature. It is based on conviction born of experience. Equal opportunity, the demand for a fair chance, became the formula of American individualism, because that was the method of American achievement.' which can be found on the first page of the manuscript and page 65 in the book, 'the character, the courage, and the divine touch' which can be found on the last page of the manuscript and from a keynote paragraph in the book--see quote on dustjacket, and 'that opportunity for which the spirit of America stands' which can be found on the last page of the manuscript and on the last page of the book. The manuscript is 6 and 1/4 pages in length on tissue paper in blue ink and includes typed corrections throughout. On the top right corner of the first page is 'Hoover' in blue pencil. The book with blue cloth binding and gilt lettering retains the original dust jacket and is in very good condition over-all with some occasional light spotty discoloration near the margin on several of the pages. The dust jacket is in good condition. Shown below are images of three pages of the manuscript along with an image showing the book. Please inquire if you have questions and/or would like a shipping quote.
