This first edition of “Life of John C. Fremont” was published the year Fremont ran for President and features 9 full-page engraved plates! A truly iconic piece of Americana literature. According to Wagner-Camp,

“This work is considered to be one of the best of several campaign biographies to appear after John C. Fremont was nominated as the first Republican candidate for the Presidency. It is thought to have been taken from documents other than those which furnished the background for the Fremont Memoirs. Letters of Mrs. Jessie Benton Fremont in the Blair-Lee Papers at the Princeton University Library indicate that she assembled the material for Bigelow.”
