A collection of the political writings ... selected and arranged, with a preface, by Theodore Sedgwick, Jr. In two volumes

New York: Taylor & Dodd, 1840. 2 volumes, 8vo, pp. xvii, [2], 20-312; 336; engraved frontispiece portrait; original green cloth, gilt-stamped spine; text foxed, one gathering extended in volume II, good and sound. Ex-Linonian Library with their stamps and marks, with 5 different accession numbers crossed out on front pastedown on both volumes, leaving "17194" and "17495" in the respective volumes. A pencil note on the front free endpaper of volume II reads: "A book worth reading. If my orthography is bad I attribute it to having taken too much liquor, not gin but brandy, yours, C.G.M." Beneath this inscription is another: "I don't know who you are but you're a damn fool, that is certain." Laid in are two scraps with detailed pencil notes (a couple of hundred words anyway) on expediency, consumption, and personal liberty - a bit of a rant, it seems, perhaps inspired by the brandy. Catalogue of the Linonian and Brothers' Library (1873), p. 184. Item #57349
