Adams, John Quincy

Lectures on Rhetoric and Oratory, delivered to the classes of junior and senior sophisters in Harvard University. Volume 1

Hillard and Metcalf, Cambridge. 1810, 431p., bound in later 19th century leather boards, ownership signature of David L. McChord; another note by J.R. Christian on the front endpaper in fountain pen states "This book fell into my hands, I know not how. Should the proper owner see it, he must have it." The edges of this notation reach the edge of the page, suggesting that the textblock was trimmed, though it retains substantial margins around the printed text. At this time Adams, who later became the sixth US president, was serving as a senator.
