Descripción:

Former owner's name on first blank - "Francis X. Dwyer". Contents clean and tight in 19th century bindings of quarter black leather spines and corners over cloth covered boards with gilt lettering and decorative stamping at spine and marbled endpapers. An attractive set. Light scattered foxing, heavier at frontispieces, leather rubbed at extremities. Each volume has a frontispiece steel engraving (Harvard University in Volume 1 and Gore Hall in Volume 2) and a few wood-engravings scattered through text. The author Josiah Quincy (1772-1864) was President of Harvard University from 1829 to 1845. He also served as a Federalist congressman, mayor of Boston, a municipal court judge, and in the Massachusetts legislature (House and Senate). While researching this history, Quincy discovered an original sketch of the VERITAS seal in College record books from the winter of 1643-44. Evidently, this seal had not before been used officially until Quincy authorized a white banner displaying the VERITAS seal on Sept. 8, 1836 during the Harvard Bicentennial. The VERITAS motto (which appears on the titlepage of this work) was officially adopted by the Harvard Corporation in 1843. The owner of this set Francis Xavier Dwyer (1902 - 1987) received a B.A. from Harvard University in 1923 and an M.A. the following year. After obtaining a law degree from Northweastern University, Dwyer returned to Harvard where he was a librarian at the Law Library from 1931 until 1941. Subsequently, he spent decades as a librarian at the Law Library of Library of Congress. Roscoe Pound was Dwyer's mentor and colleague for many years both at Harvard Law Library and the Library of Congress Law Library. Dwyer was co-author of a widely used textbook: "Introduction to the Study of Law," by Edmund M. Morgan and Francis X. Dwyer. N° de ref. de la librería
