About this Item

Perhaps a first edition, although it appears the 1st and 2nd edition bear same copyright/publishing information (see Sabin 67229). Pamphlet, lacking any wraps that may have been issued. 32 pp. A speech critical of the then current presidential administration, citing James Madison, and James Monroe as enemies of George Washington's policies during his tenure as president, laying the seeds of their power in the ruin of his administration. Alleging a cabal in the Madison administration, Quincy cites the War of 1812 (alluding to the war) as a means to enhance and further their power, as well as a shift in power in Washington due to westward expansion and slave powers. Statistics of states' revenue present on the last 2 pages. GOOD condition. Heavy browning and some creasing/curling to the piece. Tearing and chipping along the extremities of the title page. Uneven darkening/offsetting along the extremities. Scattered soiling. Sabin 67229. Bookseller Inventory # 010385
