A Lecture Delivered by the Hon. F. P. Stanton on the Navy of the United States, Before the Mercantile Library Association, February 3, 1854

New York: Samuel T. Callahan, Printer. Printed wrappers; 16 pp. Although in its original wrappers, this copy appears to have one time been bound and then disbound, perhaps by a library, as erasure and sticker residue to front wrapper indicate. Congressman Stanton (1814-1894) provides “a very imperfect sketch of the character and condition, the purposes and ends, the wants and aspirations, as well as the defects and merits of the navy of the United States.” No other copies currently found in commerce (Aug., 2017); nine copies located institutionally via WorldCat. Item #03681

Price: $75.00
