President James Buchanan Signs his copy of The History of England….
Signed in ink “James Buchanan” on inside front board; also signed by his niece, “Harriet Lane Johnston / 1868”.
Buchanan kept only a small library. After his death his niece, who acted as First Lady for her uncle – a life-long bachelor — acquired those books and usually signed them as above.
These books remain scarce and desirable.
Very good; hinges reinforced; re-spined with original cloth; previous owner’s bookplate.
