This book by Henry Adams, grandson and great-grandson of two presidents, was first printed privately in 1907. It wasn't commercially published until after his death in 1918, and won a Pulitzer Prize in 1919. Although Adams wrote in the third person, the book is autobiographical and includes commentary on 19th-century political and cultural events.
