About This Item

[Hasting-on-Hudson, N.Y.: Frederick Upham Adams, ca. 1912]. First Edition. Octavo (22.75cm.); original grey printed staplebound wrappers; 24pp. Wrapper edges a bit toned, else about Fine. WITH the rather elusive large bifolium insert to accompany p. 19 of the pamphlet. Insert with clean tears from previous folds affecting text without loss of meaning. Insert provides several "Tests" and reproduces manuscript documents to show the "Dramatic Collapse of a Plot Which Disgraces American Journalism." William Lorimer was a United States Senator from Illinois from 1909 to 1912, when the Senate held his election as invalid due to corrupt methods, including buying votes, to win the election. Adams' exposé did not have the intended effect; Lorimer ended his career in the lumber industry rather than the House of Representatives.
