First edition of the Senate Journal, 1st Session, 18th Congress. 1823. Howes M728. Original full leather boards loose but still holding. Text block sound. All pages present. 575 pages. No library markings, only evidence of prior ownership is occasional discreet notary impression. Moderate foxing throughout. Contains the Monroe Doctrine. At the beginning of every session of Congress the President presents a Message to both Houses. The Message is first published separately with pertinent documents at the beginning of the session. At the end of the session both Houses publish the Message and the activities of each Session. The President's Message is on pages 9-24. Included in the Message is the Monroe Doctrine, progress against Slavery and Piracy, discussion of a Federal Interstate highway fund, support for Greek independence and the importance of American political institutions. I have a museum quality box with quarter leather and marbled boards to hold this in for additional $195 if you feel so inclined. (Contact me for details.) A decent copy of historically important document. Please see scans of the book you will receive.
