About this Item

Twelve volumes . Complete set . Original bindings in full leather . Bright red and gold graphics on the spines . Gold gilt on the edge of the boards . These are very handsome volumes and they are so consistent in their quality that I think that it is likely that these volumes have been together as a set since publication . This is the Third Edition of these documents . The First Edition had nine volumes . The Second Edition intended to add a Tenth volume containing Confidental Papers that had not been released by the Congress for the previous edition but that material was delayed and appears as Volume X of this edition . The rich material in these volumes tells the story of the first three decades of the national government . The entries open with Washington's First Inaugural Address , April 30 , 1789 , and close with a message from President Monroe and Secretary of State John Quincy Adams dated August 1 , 1818 . All of the Inaugural Addresses of the period are here . ( John Adams' Inaugural was originally omitted but added in this edition at the end of volume twelve with apologies to President Adams . ) Many of these papers relate to the diplomatic history of the new nation . They include the communications relative to the Jay Treaty , the XYZ Affair , the Louisiana Purchase , and the War of 1812 . An Index to the first nine volumes appears at the end of Volume IX . Volume X has its own Index . The Index for Volumes XI and XII appear at the end of Volume XII . The last volume also includes a fasinating list of subscribers to the Third Edition . Please note the following remarks about condition . The boards are beginning to crack at the spine on volumes I , II , III , IX , XI , and XII . Since these boards are still firmly attached and should hold for a long time , and , since I believe that no previous repair work has been done to this set , I felt it best to leave them as is . There is insect damage to the top of a few pages ( the list of subscribers ) at the end of Vol. XII and to the front endpaper of Vol. IV . There are chips to the leather at the bottom of the spine on Vols. I , V , and XII and at the top of the spine on Vol. VIII . The front endpaper and pastedown are torn and not mended on Vol. XI . There is foxing throughout the text blocks of all volumes but not more than is to be expected for volumes of this age . There are no marks in the text blocks of the twelve volumes . The name of the previous owner is written in quill at the top of the title page of each volume . Overall , the set is bright and attractive and in very good condition . Bookseller Inventory # 009599
