Our inventory entry on this exceedingly rare title:

Including the Constitution (with 11 amendments, the recent 12th is included at the end of the text) Declaration of Independence, State Constitutions of New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Vermont, Tennessee, Kentucky and Ohio and the charter of Rhode Island. Also includes Washington’s farewell address.

Condition being tricky to assess for a book this old, we chose a “good” grade as it is related to the significant age of the book, but please carefully note the points listed below before purchasing: Full leather binding shows rubbing, chipping and a 1″ crack at front. Boards are a bit bowed. Pages are edge worn, heavily toned and foxed but not brittle. Several prior owners (all looking to be in the early 1800s) names inked to endpapers. Bumped board corners and rounded page corners. Lower corner of frontis is missing but portrait of G Washington is complete on page. Page edges are rippled. Strong binding, a collectible that can still be read and enjoyed by its new owner.
