Description


Famed frontiersman, politician, and folk hero (1786-1836) who became famous for his shrewd and humorous speeches; he was killed at the Alamo during the Texas Revolution. Hardcover ledger recording distances traveled by congressmen to attend the first session of the 23rd United States Congress, 7.5 x 10, signed inside by the politicians to certify their attendance, with most dated December 2, 1833. Davy Crockett neatly signs as a delegate from Tennessee's twelfth district, "David Crockett," certifying that he traveled 1000 miles to attend the first day of the session. Also signed inside by the other members of the House present at the session, including: John Quincy Adams, Franklin Pierce, Millard Fillmore, James K. Polk, Edward Everett, Horace Binney, Henry A. P. Muhlenberg, Henry A. Wise, Richard Mentor Johnson, John Bell, Ratliff Boon, Clement Comer Clay, Levi Lincoln, Joseph Trumbull, and dozens of others. In fine condition, with wear only to the book's covers and cocked spine; interior pages are all clean. A superb piece of Americana, boasting the highly desirable signature of Davy Crockett along with four American presidents in Adams, Pierce, Fillmore, and Polk.
