[NORTH AMERICAN LAND COMPANY]. Plan of Association of the North American Land Company. Philadelphia: Printed by R. Aitken and Son, Market Street, 1795. 25pp. Originial plain printed wrappers. Spine perished, but stitching holding well. Minor shelf wear. Somewhat tanned, but otherwise internally clean. Very good. A variant issue (there are three), this one without the folded notary leaf found in one issue. The Company was the great real estate operation floated by the Revolutionary financier Robert Morris. One of the greatest land speculations of the period, it purchased six million acres of land in Georgia, Kentucky, North and South Carolina, Virginia and Pennsylvania. Taxes on the real estate accrued faster than the land could be sold, and the company and Morris ultimately went into bankruptcy. The last copy at auction, the Park copy in 2000, realized $3600.
