DescriptionJohn Quincy Adams Signature "J. Q. Adams". Small slip, 2" x 0.25", likely cut from a document, mounted on a lithograph of Adams to the overall size of 3.5" x 5.5", produced by A.B. Durand.
John Quincy Adams, eldest son of second President John Adams, was perhaps the most qualified of all U.S. Presidents. He had served as private secretary to U.S. Minister Francis Dana in Russia and to his father, the U.S. Minister to Great Britain, before he was 20. At 26, he was appointed by President Washington as U.S. Minister to the Netherlands, at 28 to Portugal, and at 29 to Prussia. Adams served in the U.S. Senate from 1803-1808 and then as U.S. Minister to Russia (1809-1814). Adams then served as U.S. Minister to England (1815-1817) and Monroe's Secretary of State (1817-1825) before becoming President.
Condition: Bold signature, with toning throughout and light soiling; small imperfection at top of lithograph.
