About this Item

Annotated Connecticut Supreme Court Justice's Copy Clarke, Samuel [1675-1729. [Edmond, William (1755-1838)]. Sermons on the Following Subjects. Volume IX. London: Printed by W. Botham, 1731. [viii], 456 pp. Octavo (7-3/4" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary calf, blind frames to boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine. Moderate rubbing to extremities with wear to spine ends and corners, hinges cracked. Toning, occasional light foxing and dampstaining. Shelf [?] numbers and 1897 date-stamp to front pastedown, lengthy annotations by Edmond to endleaves and final page of each sermon. $250. * William Edmond was a Yale alumnus, Revolutionary War veteran, lawyer, jurist and United States Representative from Connecticut. He served on the Connecticut Supreme Court between 1805-1809. He acquired this copy of Clarke's sermons while a student at Yale. Edmond has identified the book as his throughout and has added commentary and observations in Latin and English. Page [258] identifies his birth date of 1755 and his inscription and date above is 1777. The rear free endpaper shows that by the 1800s he still kept the book, citing his position as "Judge of Supreme Court of the State of Connecticut." The ownership dates throughout the book 1777, 1783, and the implied ownership period in the 1800s suggest that Edmond had more than a passing interest in this particular volume. He may have had a particular fondness for Sermon VI: "The Reward of Justice" (pp. 117-138). Biographical Directory of the United States Congress (online version). Bookseller Inventory # 58068
