About this Item

(8 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches). 94pp. Contemporary full purple morocco, flat spine tooled and lettered in gilt, green endpapers First edition: thick paper issue in a full morocco presentation binding. The former President of the United States and Harvard professor of rhetoric delivered this great oration to Congress to commemorate Lafayette's important contribution to American Liberty. Adams' oration was read before both Houses of Congress on 31 December 1834. The Appendix prints the proceedings initiated by Adams on 21 June 1834 "to consider and report by what token of respect and affection it may be proper for the Congress of the United States to express the deep sensibility of the Nation to the event of the decease of General Lafayette." The resolution was passed unanimously. Two issues of this work were published, on regular paper and on thick paper (as here), with the latter generally bound in elaborate full morocco bindings like the present.
