About this Item

Antiquarian Lawbooks: Important collection of owner-signed lawbooks of famous American historical persons. Group of 191 (circa 1805-- 1865) that were the working books of famous Americans during this period. Some books came down through famous owners, others and have more than one signature (none signed by book authors). There are over 300 good signatures in all. Signature counts include: 60 Rufus Choate, 22 C.P. Huntington (founder Central Pacific Railroad), 163 Charles Levi Woodbury (a few appear to be of his more-famous father Levi Woodbury) plus others. All in original full leather bindings, but while all contents are in very good condition, bindings are mostly bad. Signatures mostly on blank endpapers or inside front covers. Contents are English & American law, on good paper, mostly scarce or rare. 15 cubic feet of books in 10 large full boxes. $12,775. Includes shipping, insurance in USA. Bookseller Inventory # 000094
