"Orations and After-Dinner Speeches of Chauncey M. Depew" was published in 1890. This is an original and not a reproduction as offered on-line in many places. In the publishers note it is noted that "The selection has been made from several hundred addresses, delivered in various parts of the country, and indicates very fully the wide range of topics to which the orator has turned his attention during the past twenty-fiver years, and the versatility of his treatment of questions of every degree of gravity and importance.
The book has dark green cloth covers with gilded title that wraps around to the spine. The author's signature is also gilded on the bottom right corner of the cover. This book is in very good vintage condition. There is some light wear at the top and bottom of the spine and some light bumping at the corners. The pages are exceptionally bright and clean and the binding is tight.
