Adams, Charles Francis. Friedlaender, Marc & Lyman H. Butterfield, editors.  
Diary of Charles Francis Adams. Volume 5. January 1833-October 1834.

Publisher: Belknap Press of Harvard U.P., Cambridge, Mass., 1974.
xlii, 413 p., plates, 25 cm. "This diary, kept from January 1833 to June 1836 and hitherto unpublished, has elements of hidden personal drama. Through private meetings and caucuses and newspaper articles signed with pseudonyms, the younger Adams found effective means to carry on political activities in the face of dilemmas posed by his father's public prominence, his father-in-law's contrary persuasions, and his own preferences. He emerged with growing self-respect and solid accomplishment as political journalist-- his initial vocation. The diary has fresh disclosures also about the personality of John Quincy Adams, shrewdly assessed by an observer uniquely placed to interpret domestic scenes as well as the greatly waged struggles in Washington against the Southern "slaveocracy" and "gag rules". Colorful figures in Boston's political and social life are finely etched in outspoken appraisals..." Green cloth, spine stamped in gold; tan dj spine ends & front corner chipped; VG. 36984.

Appr.: | AUD 21.51 CAD 21.74 EUR 14.93 GBP 11.94 JPY 2,000.00 MXN 250.00 ZAR 215.05

Both before and during his service abroad, he wrote regularly, sometimes almost every week, to his friend John Chamberlain, whose own letters (published in 1939), most of them addressed to Carleton, are considered models of their kind. ...Theirs was a lively, gossipy exchange that reflects various aspects of the Jacobean world and reveals the temper of a period of rapid, momentous, and not always intelligible change, both in England and in Europe.'
