Very Good Plus. This first publication of the British diplomat's work is based on two manuscripts--an earlier one at The Huntington Library and a somewhat later one in the Foster papers at the Library of Congress. Foster wrote the two manuscripts some years after his time in America but he had apparently retained many materials that assisted him in his writing. The result is a compelling account of America during the Jefferson and Madison presidencies. This copy is in excellent condition and comes from the library of G. Wallace Sterling, former president of Stanford, and his signature is on the first free endpaper. The graphics on the front board and spine are bright. The binding is tight. The interior is clean, no marks except for Sterling's signature.
