Title: Memoirs of Andrew Jackson, Major General in the Army of the United States; and Commander in Chief of the Division of the South
Author: S. Putnam Waldo
Publisher: John Russell, Jr. (Hartford)
Printing Year: 1818

Condition/Details: Bound in leather with bright gilt embossing, this antique volume is a scarce biography of the commander of American forces at the Battle of New Orleans (1815), who would later become the seventh President of the United States (1829-1837). The author states in a note to the reader: "Ever since his name became identified with the glory of his country, the author has assiduously sought for the most authentic information relative to his origin, and his progress from humble life to his present elevation. The facts relative to his parentage, his birth, education, and early pursuits, were derived from a Southern Correspondent, whose means of knowledge, entitle his communications to the character of absolute verity. From the early entrance of Gen. Jackson into public life, and from the laudable propensity of Americans to preserve, in various periodical journals, detached incidents of the lives of American Worthies, it needs only industry and research to collate them. The manner in which they are arranged, and the style in which they are detailed depends wholly upon the author. To give additional interest to the volume, a number of Gen. Jackson's Official Reports, and some selections from his numerous Letters, and Addresses are incorporated into the work."

The volume shows light external age/wear, and is solidly bound with age-toned pages that show foxing throughout. The book measures approximately 4.5" x 7" and contains 316 pages. Pages 101 to 104 have tears across the middle of the page without loss to content of the text. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $4.50.
