James Buchanan, The History of England…, Signed

From Buchanan’s Library, Signed By Buchanan’s First Lady, Too




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.
