1800 Folwell's Press printing, preceded only by Claypoole and Patterson editions (see Evans 17767). One of 400 copies. Includes colloquial jacket with titles handwritten in black ink. Some pages unopened. A few pages lightly foxed, 2 inch closed tear to p. 56. 396, [38] pp. 8vo. A very early collection of congressional proceedings, recounting events that preceded the United States Constitution. At this time, the thirteen states were just completing the ratification of the Articles of Confederation, after which point the specifics of the country's political structure needed to be decided upon and codified. These proceedings provide an interesting glimpse into this formative time in American history.
