Decorative gold cloth with gilt and black lettering and design on the front cover and spine. Gilt outer page edges. 670 unmarked and uncreased historical pages nicely enhanced by black and white wood-cut illustrations and 11 wonderful pages of historic steel-plate illustrations! Frontis is a group plate of four presidents, containing likenesses of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, and Andrew Johnson. No publisher's date given. "There are few persons who can read this record of the Lives of the Presidents of the United States without the conviction, that there is no other nation which can present a consecutive series of twenty rulers of equal excellence of character and administrative ability. Probably the least worthy of all our presidents would rank among the best of the kings whom the accident of birth has placed upon hereditary thrones; and not an individual has popular suffrage elevated to the presidential chair, whom one would think of ranking with those many royal monsters who have in turn disgraced all the courts of Europe. This record settles the question, that popular suffrage, in the choice of rulers, is a far safer reliance than hereditary descent." ---- from the Preface Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
