Arthur J. Stansbury. "John, Quincy, Adams. Sketch'd by Arthur J. Stansbury Esqr. A Few Hours Previous To The Death of Mr. Adams." New York, 1848. Lithograph by Sarony & Major. 10 1/4 x 14 1/8. Very good condition.
A most unusual memorial print, based on an 'on-the-spot' drawing done just before Adams died. This finely produced lithograph by Sarony & Major, with its somber and patriotic border, would have been sold to a grieving public as news of the President's death was announced.
