32 volumes signed by Millard Fillmore on behalf of his wife

Impressive signed book set: Cooper's Novels, With a Discourse on the Life, Genius, and Writings of the Author by William Cullen Bryant, in 32 volumes. NY: W.A. Townsend and Company, 1859-1861. Each volume is signed on the front pastedown by Fillmore on behalf of his wife, with variations including "Mrs. Millard Fillmore" (14), "Mrs. C. C. Fillmore" (5), and "Mrs. Caroline C. Fillmore" (13). In addition, Caroline also signed and dated many of the volumes on the title page. An impressive set of the works of James Fenimore Cooper, from the Fillmore family library. Autographic condition: fine. Book condition: VG/None, with general wear. This set was deaccessioned from the Buffalo and Erie County Historical library, the public library of which was co-founded by the Fillmores, (and to which they donated much of their library), and as such has the expected library stickers on the spines. A decidedly impressive presidential set.
