Boston: Ticknor & Fields, 1856. Issued anonymously as a political biography for Fremont's run at the presidency, but written by him with major collaboration by Charles Wentworth Upham (1802-1875), a rather well-known (and stiff-necked) politician of the time. This is a Very Good copy of the First Edition. Not a particularly scarce book, but this is a First Printing copy, which is definitely uncommon. Brown cloth binding, blindstamped, with gilt lettering on the spine. Clean text; 356 pages, with 12 pages of publisher's adverts in the rear. Text is very readable; bright, unfoxed aside from the frontis, and supple. Very mildly bumped; spine has faded to a light tan but lettering is still bright. A very solid copy. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. First Edition.
