Mason Locke Weems; His Works and Ways: Letters, 1784-1825 [Two Volumes, Complete]
New York, 1929. Quarto, quarter cloth over patterned paper, 435 + 477 pp. Complete in two volumes. These volumes comprise Vols. II-III in the series but are complete in themselves. No. 230 of 300 copies. Inscribed by the editor on front free endpaper in the year of publication. A scarce collection. Some tape reside to endpapers, light intermittent foxing, else near fine with minimal wear. Very good plus overall. "Weems was a minister-turned-book-peddler, who brought books and culture to the towns, cities, and farms along the Atlantic Coast. He was "a most delightful mixture of the Scriptures, Homer, Virgil, and the back woods. . . . Reckless in statement, indifferent to facts and research, his books are full of popular heroism, religion and morality, which you at first call trash and cant and then, finding it extremely entertaining, you declare with a laugh, as you lay down the book, what a clever rogue" (Fisher, p. 65)." - ANB.
