Fourth of July oratory.
Shaw & Shoemaker 25367. Removed from a nonce volume. Signatures long ago resewn Ex-library with rubber stamp on title page. Pencilled ownership inscription on title page. Page age-toned and with some foxing. Edges very tattered with slight tears, some pages unevenly cut, others crumpled or dog-eared. A one inch cut from the margin going through all signatures with loss to the odd word, without loss to sense. Page 27 cut in half but still intact, no loss to text. The last page is the most seriously damaged, with tears producing slight loss to page on either side, again without loss to the sense of any sentence, the page appears very tattered and crumpled.
