Oration on the Life and Character of Gilbert Motier de Lafayette Delivered at the Request of Both Houses of the Congress of the United States..

Washington: Printed by Duff Green, 1835. Original wrappers (the upper wrapper is printed, apparently in the same setting of type as the title page); 96 pages including the title leaf; 94 pages of text. Another edition was issued the same year by Gales and Seaton. Adams was elected to the House after his defeat by Jackson for a second Presidential term. At that earlier election, this printer, a publisher and politician, was a supporter of Adams’s opponent. A very good copy of what is essentially a short biography of the recently deceased Lafayette.
