London, 1828. 8vo, 3/4 morocco by Henderson & Bissett, 385 pp. Gilt lettered spine, top edge gilt. A very nice copy of the author's first book in a fine contemporary binding. Excellent condition overall with some light normal foxing. Hall was born at Philadelphia. After studying law for some time, in 1812 he joined the United States Army. In the war with Great Britain, he distinguished himself in engagements at Lundy?s Lane, Niagara and Fort Erie. At the end of the war, he accompanied an expedition against Algiers, but in 1818 he resigned his commission, and continued the study of law at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Hall is generally considered as a pioneering figure in Midwestern literature. "His first book pirated from The Portfolio." - Howes H74. BAL 6919; Graff 1734. N° de ref. de la librería SP440
