Life and Times of General Washington 2 Volumes 1st Edition

£150.00

Product description

The Life and Times of General Washington by Cyrus R Edmonds
In Two Volumes

London: Printed for Thomas Tegg and Son
73 Cheapside

1835 & 1836

Printed by Bradbury & Evans

Part of Murray's Family Library Series

First Edition - scarce.

A very nice set: in what appears to be contemporary polished calf, gilt decoration to banded spine and edge of boards. Marbled endpapers and edges. B/w engraved frontis in each volume.
Volume I includes a facsimile letter signed by Washington and Volume II a folding facsimile of the hand-written Declaration of Independence.

Spines lack labels and are rubbed at edges, as are corners and edges. Leather has a few light surface scratches. Folding Declaration has a tear where it joins the page. Minor foxing, but this is more pronounced on illustrated frontis pages and on fold-out letter.
