Descripción

Early brown cloth with taped spine. 16mo. 231pp. Ex-Library. An important collection of letters found by the author in the Baltimore Custom House in 1847. The author's father and uncle, Robert and Samuel Purviance, were prominent merchants in Baltimore and active members of the Baltimore Committee of Correspondence and the Committee of Observation. Most of the correspondence consists of letters exchanged among the committees set up in the American colonial towns to coordinate their strategies during the War. Topics include the Boston Port Bill; the defense of Chesapeake Bay; the plot to capture Robert Eden; and much more. A good copy with some spotting and edge-fraying to the cloth covers. The spine on this copy is reinforced with black cloth tape with white writing on it. The text is very good with some light wear. The text has some scattered heavy foxing. Page 103 has a 3-line ink correction at the bottom in an early hand. There is a bookplate at front and a card pocket at the rear. The flyleaf has a small ink deaccession stamp. There are no other markings in the book. Scarce. HOWES P-655. N° de ref. de la librería 4713
