About this Item

Full leather. ii, 846 pp. + 42 pp. Table. Chipping at head and foot of spine with slight loss, corner wear, some separation at one spine edge but still very tight, author and title spine slip chipped with about one-quarter loss, signed in ink by Ephraim Paine, Stephen Eno (January 10 1798), and Jonathan Holdeen (May 24 1936), some ink notation, Good. Ephraim Paine, who lived in Amenia, N.Y (Dutchess County), was the son of Ephraim Paine, the delegate to the Continental Congress. Stephen Eno practiced law in Pine Plains, N.Y. and was a prominent lawyer in Duchess County. Jonathan Holdeen (1881-1967), who resided in Pine Plains and had an office in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., was the eccentric, penny-pinching, millionaire lawyer who set up 2.8 million dollars in trusts to make Pennsylvania a tax-free state (an idea inspired by Benjamin Franklin). An extraordinary legal clash followed in which the Unitarian Universalists were involved. Google Holdeen, and read about this fascinating scheme and legal battle. Interesting provenance.
