Hartford: Silas Andrus, 1819. Hardcover. Third edition of this early memoir of Jackson, published ten years before he became president. This copy, while readable, is in poor condition. Leather boards are beaten up and curled. Endpapers are written on, including on the free front endpaper "Union Library No. 302 Out 4 weeks." Presumably a child has glued a cut out illustration of a train engine to rear free endpaper. Missing frontis portrait. Pages are browned but, again, legible. 312 pages. Poor.
