About this Item

Two volume set. Volume I, 1735 - 1784. Volume II, 1784 - 1826. Total of 1,170 pp. The biography of the 2nd president of the U. S. Volume I covers Adam's formative years and his life with Abigail Smith Adams. An excellent biography, it describes Adams as cantankerous, rude and acertic, as well as an insufferable hypochondriac. Volume II covers Adam's frustrating years as Ambassador to London, his tumultuous career as vice president and president and his twilight years as a farmer and commentator on the country's events. It discusses his fascinating relationship with Thomas Jefferson and his family life with Abigail. He lived to the age of 90 and died on July 4, 1826, several hours after his close friend Thomas Jefferson passed away. Green boards with gilt design on covers and gilt lettering on spines. 3 raised bands and gilt edges around. Silk bookmark attached. Collector's notes in both volumes. Bookseller Inventory # 39303
