About this Item

First British printing, following the first American edition of the previous year. Monroe's defense of his actions as minister to France was "republished for the purpose of counteracting the pernicious representations of Mr. Harper, in his Observations on the Dispute between the United States and France," as Sabin notes. While the original Philadelphia printing was an octavo of over 400 pages, this edited reprint omits some of the less directly relevant supplemental material and is a much svelter volume, an octavo weighing in at 126 pages. 8vo (21.5 cm, 8.5"). viii, 117, [1 (blank)] pp. ESTC N45792; Sabin 50020; Howes M-727. Quarter blue morocco and blue cloth period-style, spine with gilt-stamped title within gilt-ruled raised bands and with gilt-stamped fleurons at head and foot. Title-page and several others stamped by a now-defunct institution; lacking final blank. Light waterstaining to lower outer margins of pages in latter half of book. A few pages with pencilled marginalia, in some instances offset onto opposing pages. Bookseller Inventory # 4810
