Boards rubbed with a few minor abrasions, faintly foxed throughout, Goodspeed catalog number on front endpaper. Inscribed & signed by publisher on presentation page: 'Wm. Matthews Esqr, with the regards of Cha Gorham Barney, Richmond Va 1860'. [x], 69, [2] pp. Folio. Three-quarter calf & marbled cloth, top edge gilt, marbled boards. 1860 privately printed limited large paper edition, a facsimile of the rare 1615 original. One of 200 copies. Published and signed by Charles Gorham Barney, a direct descendant of John Carver, who was the first governor of the Plymouth Colony. The author, Hamor, was the secretary to the Council of Virginia, and provides detailed information from personal experiences during nearly three years in the earliest days of the colony. Most notably, Hamor describes the marriage of Pocahontas (Powhatan) to John Rolfe - the original edition remains the primary source for this event. Sabin 30121: 'Two hundred copies privately [re]printed for Chas. Gorham Barney, of Richmond, Va., 1860. The recto of the first leaf reads, 'Presented to;' by which it is to be understood the entire edition was reprinted for presents only; but the book was used for exchanges. It is conspicuous for its ridiculously large margin.
