About this Item

Current list price for 16 volume set: $1229.00. No highlighting, underlining, margin notes, or former owner's name. This 16 volume massive set (9,914 pages) is in like new condition, the volumes appear to have never been used and includes the index volume, an essential part of any set of papers of this scope. This 16 volume set is a wonderful collection of the papers of one of the important politicians in the generation after the founders of the United States. Webster was perhaps the finest political orator ever in the United States, a lawyer of extraordinary skill, one of the best, if not, the best advocate ever to appear before the Supreme Court. Unfortunately, Webster was also a man whose ambitions often brought out the flaws in his character and these ultimately led to the frustration of his ambition to be President of the United States. These papers reveal much more of the man, his intellect, and his times than any previous collection. This collection is praised by Webster's biographer, Robert Remini, as "one of the finest examples of the collecting, collating, editing. [of] important works of the men and women who have shaped our history."

Stevens, Anita McGurn, and Alan R. Berolzheimer. The legal papers volumes were edited by Andrew J. King and Alfred S. Konefsky. The general index was prepared by Alan R. Berolzheimer.
