About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Journals of Congress, Containing the Proceedings from Sept. 5, 1774 to Jan. 1, 1776.

Description:

8vo. (Short marginal tear on Qq2 just touching text.) Original boards, UNCUT (portions of backstrip lacking, some pale staining); quarter blue morocco slipcase. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION. The Journals were issued by the government's printers Robert Aitken, John Patterson, John Dunlap and David Claypoole and document the early history of the American republic, minutely recording its progression from an array of disparate and disgruntled colonies to armed resistence and outright rebellion, Independence, confederation, and eventually, unification under a remarkable Federal Constitution. The journals records the daily business of the Congress, and contain the most vital documents from the Revolutionary period through the end of the Confederacy, and culminates with the tumultuous adoption of the Federal Constitution in 1788. The bibliographical and textual importance of books preserved in original, unsophisticated state needs no elaboration, especially as some of the edition sizes were quite small (as few as 500 copies). The resolution of 13 September 1786, which was printed in volume 11, directs "That the Secretary of Congress take order for having printed and bound in the usual manner [boards?] five hundred volumes of the journals of Congress for each of the years 1777, 1778, 1780 and 1781 1782." The 12-page Index is not present at end of this copy--clearly issued without it at the time of publication. Soon after the Declaration of Independence, Congress recognized the necessity of publishing and disseminating its proceedings on a timely basis. These volumes appeared in more or less annual volumes, but in variable formats and from three different printers: Robert Aitken, John Dunlap, and David Claypoole. A tradition had already been established by the separate publication of the Journals from the First and Second Continental Congress in 1774 and 1775. This, the first volume in the series, began after the Declaration of Independence, reprinted those journals, and was issued concurrently with the second volume, both appearing from the press of Robert Aitken in 1777 (that volume includes the full text of the Declaration of Independence, and the names of the Signers, pp. 241-246).
