About this Item

Thirteen volumes. Original boards. Vol. I-V with original paper spines, paper labels. Vol. VI-XIII with in original paper boards, old vellum rebacking of each volume. Free endpapers excised from several volumes. A few volumes also have reinforced gutter on titlepage. Otherwise a crisp, clean, untrimmed set. Very good. The first collected printing of the Journals of the United States Congress, known as the "Folwell Edition." In this set the first volume is present in the 1777 first collected edition of the first Journals of the Continental Congress. Prior to the issuing of Folwell's set, the Journals had appeared in more or less annual volumes (such as the first volume in the present set). Many of those original journals are virtually unobtainable. In 1799, Congress directed that Richard Folwell print 400 sets of the complete journals of the Continental Congress for the use of the Senate and the House of Representatives. This was accomplished during 1800 and 1801, reprinting the annual volumes comprising the proceedings of the Continental Congress from the two Congresses held prior to the Declaration of Independence, then for the duration of the Confederacy, through the adoption of the Federal Constitution in 1788. A vital record of the Revolutionary period. SABIN 15545. EVANS 15683, 38750 (through 1800). Bookseller Inventory # WRCAM 20814A
