About this Item

large 8vo. cloth. (x), xiii, (iii), 275(+1) pages. Also A Reprint of the First Edition of the Trial. Edition limited to 325 copies on deckle edge paper. The biography of this eighteenth-century printer (1697-1746) whose trial inspired "freedom of the press" in colonial America. Well-illustrated, with portraits and facsimiles, including at least one fold-out. Sections at the back include a bibliography of the 1735 trial, a list of issues of Zenger's New York Weekly Journal (noting library locations), and an index. The exterior of this copy shows generally minor wear and soiling. The corners have been bumped slightly. The spine has darkened and the paper label is moderately worn and stained. A small paper number label has been added at the tail of the spine. The plate of a previous owner appears on the front pastedown. The leaves are unopened. A crack is developing at the hinge of the front endpaper, but the cover is still firmly attached. A newspaper article about a Bronx school sculpture of Zenger is loosely laid-in just prior to page 11 and has discolored the adjacent pages. Bookseller Inventory # 90309
