VOLUME III ONLY of Irving Brant's six volume Madison biography. First edition (per publisher's requisite statement upon copyright page). 520 pages plus unpaged plates. Hardcover; H 24cm x L 16.25cm. Green dust jacket rubbed, bumping and creasing along top edges with two short tears at top edge of front panel, bottom corner of front flap is price-clipped; dj now presented in a mylar protector. Maroon cloth with still bright gilt stamping, mild soiling along board edges with light shelfwear along bottom edges too. Maroon top edge; toning to fore-edge with some soiling upon bottom edge. Slender strips of soiling along bottom edges of front and rear endpapers; interior leaves are otherwise quite clean. Frontispiece; b/w plates; Notes; Index. A very good copy in a very good dust jacket. Although perhaps not as famous as the presidential biographies by Douglas Southall Freeman, Dumas Malone, and Robert Remini, Brant's study of James Madison remains the definitive examination of the life of the United States' fourth president and his contributions to American constitutional history during the country's political evolution from the colonial era through its emergence as a young republic.
