About this Item

Hillhouse, a United States Senator from Connecticut, put forth these seven amendments in the hopes of diminishing corruption and partisan politics. One of the most interesting is => the suggestion that the President of the U.S. be chosen by lottery from among the existing senators, to serve a one-year term! Following Hillhouse's discussion of his purpose and reasoning, the actual amendments have a separate title-page. => First edition. Second and third editions were printed at New Haven by Oliver Steele & Co. in the same year as this first. 12mo (19.3 cm, 7.6"). 52, [2], 7 pp. Sabin 31883; Shaw & Shoemaker 15230. Recent marbled paper?covered boards, front cover with printed paper label. Pages with a few scattered spots of light staining and occasional early inked corrections; old stitching holes in inner margins. Page edges untrimmed. In fact, quite a nice copy.
