About this Item

13 volumes. First authorized editions printed by authority and a copy with fine provenance having once been owned by the BritishForeign Office. 8vo, contemporary tan calf, some volumes with antique re-backings accomplished at a very early date, red morocco title pieces and session labels placed between gilt lined panels of spine. Internally quite crisp and nicely preserved, clean and unpressed, the bindings so have some chipping and wear due to age and use. A VERY RARE EXTENSIVE COLLECTION OF THE EARLIEST ACTS, LAWS AND TREATIES PASSED BY THE CONGRESSES OF THE UNITED STATES AND SIGNED BY THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES. WITH A VERY EARLY PRINTING OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES, THE BILL OF RIGHTS, THE TREATY OF PARIS AND OTHER IMPORTANT CONGRESSIONAL ACTIONS. Early collections of American political and diplomatic acts are especially scarce. Beginning with an early printing of the Constitution and the first acts of the first Congress of the United States, this very important and rare set of books includes the original Treaties and Laws from 1778 and "Acts Passed at the First Session of the First Congress". Subsequent Acts of Congress and the Presidents including the mapping of the territories the provision for the Lewis and Clark expedition, the authorizations for purchases of land that would eventually make up the country, the provisions for war and the foreign treaties (including Indian treaties) are also included. Subsequent volumes carry the printing through to 1819. Each volume is stamped FOREIGN OFFICE on the upper cover and title page. Bookseller Inventory # 12463
