About This Item

Princeton: D'Hart and Connolly, 1831. First Edition. Pamphlet. Near fine. Signed by George M. Dallas, the future Vice President under President James K. Polk, the first edition of An Address Delivered In the Church at Princeton, September 27, 1831.. Octavo, [1]-26pp, [1]. Publisher's original paper wraps, title on front cover. Bound at spine with string. This work was published by request of the American Whig - Cliosophic Societies of Princeton University. (Sabin 18320) This work is signed on the front cover: "from Mr. Dallas / 28 Nov. 1831." George M. Dallas (1792-1864) served as the 11th Vice President of the United States from 1845 to 1849 under President James K. Polk. He graduated from the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University) in 1810 and subsequently studied law. Dallas entered politics early, serving as the private secretary to Albert Gallatin, a former Treasury Secretary, and then embarked on a diplomatic career, including posts in Russia and Great Britain. Domestically, he served as the Mayor of Philadelphia (1828-1829), the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania (1829-1831), and as a U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania (1831-1833). Dallas was also the 11th Attorney General of Pennsylvania (1833-1835). Dallas sought the White House in 1848, but after taking some controversial tie-breaking votes on tariffs while President of the Senate, he had very little popular support.
