1880 Presidential Compendium
The book is titled Our Presidential Candidates and Political Compendium and was published in 1880 by F.C. Bliss and Co. It is a compilation of the platforms and proceedings of the three previous conventions and contains the lives of the candidates for president and vice president along with their letters accepting the nomination of their parties.

It is quaint to think that they didn’t consider it proper to appear at their own conventions to give acceptance speeches. This particular book is in good condition overall. What was the final auction price by Proxibid for this campaign book in 2006?

Presidential compendium

A. $26
B. $12
C. $20
