The Russian Memoirs of John Quincy Adams; His Diary from 1809 to 1815 [Originally published in Volume II of Memoirs of John Quincy Adams]. John Quincy Adams, Charles Francis Adams.
New York: Arno Press & The New York Times, 1970. Presumed First Edition [Stated], First Printing thus. Hardcover. [8], 602, [2] pages. Occasional footnotes. Cover has slight wear and soiling. Pages 181-190 has minor edge roughness. John Quincy Adams (July 11, 1767 – February 23, 1848) was an American statesman who served as a diplomat, United States Senator, member of the House of Representatives, and the sixth President of the United States from 1825 to 1829. He was a member of the Federalist, Democratic-Republican, National Republican, and later the Anti-Masonic and Whig parties. He was the son of President John Adams and Abigail Adams. Adams shaped U.S. foreign policy using his ardently nationalist commitment. As a diplomat, Adams played an important role in negotiating key treaties, most notably the Treaty of Ghent, which ended the War of 1812. As Secretary of State, he negotiated with Britain over the United States' northern border with Canada, negotiated with Spain the annexation of Florida, and drafted the Monroe Doctrine. Historians generally concur that he was one of the greatest diplomats and secretaries of state in American history. As president he sought to modernize the American economy and promote education. Adams enacted a part of his agenda and paid off much of the national debt. He has been portrayed as an exemplar leader during an era of modernization, when new modes of communication spread messages of social reform, and improved transportation moved goods, money, and people more rapidly. After leaving office, he was elected as U.S. Representative from Massachusetts in 1830, serving for the last 17 years of his life with greater acclaim than he had achieved as president.

Flames Across the Border; The Canadian-American Tragedy, 1813-1814. Pierre Berton.
Boston, MA: Little, Brown and Company, 1981. First American Edition. Hardcover. 492 pages. Maps. Notes. Bibliography. Index. Some wear to DJ edges. Pierre Francis de Marigny Berton, (July 12, 1920 – November 30, 2004) was a noted Canadian author of non-fiction, especially Canadiana and Canadian history, and was a well-known television personality and journalist. An accomplished storyteller, Berton was one of Canada's most prolific and popular authors. He wrote on Canadian history, critiques of mainstream religion, anthologies, and historical works. He was also a founder of the Writers' Trust of Canada, a non-profit literary organization that seeks to encourage Canada's writing community. Berton's 50 books became popular because of his light and fast-paced style. Historian C.P. Stacey in 1980, said Berton demonstrated his skill as an anecdotalist, or storyteller, who emphasized the human dimension. At the age of 31 he was named managing editor of Macleans. In 1957, he became a key member of the CBC's public affairs flagship program, Close-Up, and a permanent panelist on the popular television show Front Page Challenge. Berton joined the Toronto Star as associate editor of the Star Weekly and columnist for the daily paper in 1958, leaving in 1962 to commence The Pierre Berton Show, which ran until 1973. On this show in 1971 Berton interviewed Bruce Lee in what was to be the famous martial artist's only surviving television interview. Berton served as the Chancellor of Yukon College.
