John Adams is elected President of the United States...
Item # 676790
February 01, 1797
NEW YORK MAGAZINE OR LITERARY REPOSITORY, February, 1797
* John Adams presidential election
* Thomas Jefferson as vice president
The most notable report is the announcement that John Adams has been elected President of the United States.
A report near the back notes in part: "Yesterday, agreeable to a provision of the Constitution...the members...assembled...to count the votes of the Electors for, and determined the election of, a President and Vice President of the United States: when John Adams, Esq. was declared rot be elected President, and Thomas Jefferson, Esq. Vice-President..." with a bit more.
Among the articles are: "Application of the Doctrine of Septic Fluids to Explain Some of the Diseases of Human Teeth and Bones" which takes over 8 pages. Also: "Portrait of General Washington" being a descriptive, textual article.
Near the back are the news reports including a short bit noting: "Wednesday last was honored as the anniversary of the birthday of George Washington."
Certainly one of the less common 18th century American magazine titles, existing from just 1790 to 1797.
No plates are present.
Complete in 56 pages, lacking a full title/contents page, 5 by 8 inches, various foxing, otherwise good.
