Nce inscription to Congressman Julius Kahn
Hale, Edward Everett

– The Man Without A Country, A later edition from 1907 by Little, Brown and Company in Boston. Some beginning separation or cracking of the flyleaf signature page from the binding. “My dear Julius, I hope you will never live to see such a crisis as brought this book into being. Edward E. Hale.” Julius is Julius Kahn, a noted Congressman from California who served from 1889-1924 (losing in 1902 but regaining the seat in 1904). He was succeeded by his wife Florence Kahn who served another 12 years. Hale was appointed Chaplain of the U.S. Senate in 1903 and undoubtedly became friendly with Kahn. The book is a rather unimpressive later edition but the inscription and association make it a very nice piece. Should the page be removed from the book it would frame nicely. [#1797]
