About this Item

16mo. Quarter burgundy calf with gilt spine lettering and raised bands and marbled paper over boards. viii, 408pp, 12pp. Very good. Faint binding edgewear at extremities; light even age toning to text block. Quite tight and exceptionally handsome copy of this annual compilation -- with a unique autograph twist: Inner flyleaf bears a presentation inscription in a fine, legible hand: "S.J. Cramer / from his Friend / Bush'd. C. Washington." (Below this, another 19th century hand saw fit to repeat this verbatim in thick, bolder ink.) Bushrod C. Washington (1790-1851) was President George Washington's great nephew and a Virginia justice of the peace, legislator and plantation owner. S.J. Cramer signs the title page small but bold, and several text pages bear neat margin notes in pencil in what appears to be his hand. Title continues: "Including a Correct LIST of the EIGHTH Imperial Parliament, summoned to meet for their First Session July 25, 1826." And continues again: "Both Houses of Parliament, Officers of the State, Law, Revenue, and other Public Departments; Army and Navy; Ecclesiastical Establishments; Literary, Scientific, and Charitable, Institutions; Commercial Companies, &c." A most unusual copy. (NOTE: Bushrod C. Washington should not be confused with Bushrod Washington, 1762-1829, the nephew of George Washington who inherited Mount Vernon upon the first president's death in 1799 and who was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1798 at age 36, serving as associate justice until his death.).
