About this Item

xii,379,[2]pp. Modern paper-covered boards. A few instances of light foxing. Very good. "The first historical study of American diplomacy" - Bemis. Lyman's work, though superseded by later, more wide-ranging scholarship, is important in that it is the first attempt at a systematic diplomatic history of the United States. He consulted the American State Papers series, the Journals of Congress, official British documents, and American library collections in producing this work. The various chapters treat relations with specific countries, such as France, Great Britain, Sweden, Russia, and Spain, and provide a quite detailed and informed analysis. Another chapter is on the Louisiana Purchase, and an appendix lists all American treaties to date, while another gives the salaries of American envoys and ambassadors from 1801 to 1819. Theodore Lyman (1792- 1849), a graduate of Harvard, toured Europe with Edward Everett as a young man, served in the Massachusetts legislature and senate, and was twice elected mayor of Boston. While his early and important work on the diplomatic history of the United States appears in many institutional collections, it is rather scarce on the market, with only one copy having sold at auction since 1983. A significant early study of American diplomacy. BEMIS, GUIDE TO THE DIPLOMATIC HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES 14. HOWES L582. SABIN 42796. LARNED 1649, 2564. APPLETON'S CYCLOPÆDIA IV, p.61.
