Exceptional Autograph Book Signed by President Grant and Others, published by J. P. Lippincott & Co., Philadelphia, approximately 180 pp., 8vo (9" x 6"), tooled gilt leather covers with gilt page ends. Front endpaper with later pencil inscription as follows: "Compiled Jan - March 1874 / 6 - U.S. Grant & Cabinet / 9 - Supreme Court Justices / c66 - Senators / c271 - Representatives...Over 350 autographs of the executive, judicial, and legislative branches of the U. S. Gov." The President's bold "U. S. Grant" leads this impressive array of autographs. A thorough inventory of the signatures will surely yield many names of Civil War and Reconstruction luminaries. Chipping to cover's extremities, some loss to spine, light staining to endpapers, internally fine.
