Publisher’s wraps, unbound and untrimmed, approx. 16 by 24.5 cm, 96 pp., complete, though Sabin (no. 279) calls for 100 pages. Loosely held in a card cover with the label of Broomall, Pennsylvania, bookseller Jeff Wilson. Publisher’s wraps nearly detached with edge wear, chips, and stains. The textblock is very good with edge wear and foxing. Not only a short biography of the fifth President of the United States, but a touching tribute by his presidential successor. “And should the gloom of the year of Independence ever again overspread the sky, or the metropolis of your empire be once more destined to smart under the scourge of an invader’s hand, that there never may be found wanting among the children of your country a warrior to bleed, a statesman to counsel, a chief to direct and govern, inspired with all the virtues, and endowed with all the faculties, which have been so signally displayed in the life of James Monroe.”
