The Political Text Book Containing The Declaration Of Independence, With The Lives Of The Signers; The Constitution Of The United States;  The Inaugural Addresses and First Annual Messages Of All The Presidents, From Washington To Tyler; The Farewell Addresses Form George Washington And Andrew Jackson; And A Variety Of Useful Tables, Etc. By Edward Currier. WORCESTER, MS; Published By Warren Blake, 1842.   Hard cover, full original calf, gilt lettering and trim on spine, 512 pages, engraved frontispiece of American Presidents.

The condition is very good, being a tight copy with not a great deal of handling.  Leather boards have a marbled effect and generally are very good; back cover separated for 4″ up from bottom, but in a state where minor repair is needed. Some roughness on upper and lower spine, wear on corners and some along edges. Flyleaves, frontispiece, title page have a small water stain on upper pages (diminishing continually until page 40),  a bit more foxing than the pages within, which becomes light overall.

The title page covered the contents quite nicely. A excellent and early reference.
