Pages are brittle, darkened, and spotted with age. Smudges on some pages. A few pages have small edge tears not affecting pictures or text. Pages and binding are tight. The cover is marbled paper covered boards with reinforced corners and spine. The cover is badly rubbed and edge worn. The book may have been rebound. At the back of the book are eight facsimilies of letters (folded) from John Adams, Jefferson, James Monroe, James Madison, John Quincy Adams, Gen. Lafayette and others. This is a very interesting historical document and still in useable condition. Bookseller Inventory # 028021
