Signed book: Oration on the Life and Character of Gilbert Motier de Lafayette. Washington: Gales and Seaton, 1835. Hardcover, 5.5 x 9, 94 pages. Signed and inscribed on a 5 x 7.75 off-white page, “Joseph Vance from John Quincy Adams,” neatly affixed by its extreme left edge to the book’s title page. As was customary at the time, no doubt due to his advanced age and physical limitations, Adams penned the inscription on a separate page and then had the recipient insert the page into an appropriate volume. In good condition, with missing cover and spine (back cover is present but detached), soiling and creasing to signed page, scattered toning to remaining pages, fragile binding, small tears to opening and closing pages, and staining to fore-edges. Book is housed in a custom clamshell box.
