Riis the reformer met TR when he was a young Assemblyman. They became friends and allies in social causes. A rare edition. Miles, Image Makers, #886, Miles does not note this edition and the collation is slightly different and there are no illustrations. The title page bears the Macmillan imprint but the printed wrappers are from the American News Company. To further compound and confound, this book is listed as "No. 17 Library Of Popular Fiction", on the spine. A scarce and intriguing issue.
