About this Item

Publisher's cloth; 8vo; pp. [i]-viii, [9]-451. Spine torn and boards detached, but with an interesting provenance -- ownership signature of Richard Varick (see below) on the front paste-down. Moderately foxed throughout; short bio (typed) of Varick affized to front paste-down, not infringing upon his signature. Richard Varick (1753-1831) was an American lawyer and politician. During the American Revolutionary War, he was appointed captain of the 1st New York Regiment, serving under General Philip Schuyler in various posts until after the Battle of Saratoga, when he was appointed inspector-general of West Point, where he became an aide to General Benedict Arnold. After Arnold defected to the British, Varick served as General George Washington's private secretary. Varick was Recorder of New York from 1784 to 1789, and New York State Attorney General from 1788 to 1789. He was Mayor of New York City from 1789 to 1801. He was a member of the New York State Assembly from New York County from 1786 to 1788, and he was Speaker during the sessions of 1787 and 1788 -- all while serving as colonel in the state militia, and serving as a bank officer. He was a founder and later president (succeeding John Jay) of the American Bible Society. Bookseller Inventory # WB14166
