Descripción

8vo, pp. 141; a very good copy in contemporary American sheep, spine with remains of morocco label, rubbed. Contemporary ownership inscription on half title of Thomas Sessions, 20 April 1797. First edition, and a good copy. Josias Arnold died in 1796 at the age of only 28: he was the son of Jonathan Arnold (1741-93), the revolutionary patriot who drafted the law in 1776 which repealed the Rhode Island oath of allegiance to Britain, and who was one of the leading founders of St Johnsbury, VT. The prefatory account of the author is by James Burrill, another Rhode Island notable who had just become the state's attorney general and who later rose to become one of its senators. The copyright was secured to Mrs Susan Arnold, doubtless the author's widow. This copy belonged to one Thomas Sessions, who presumably bought it on publication. It seems very like that this is the Thomas Sessions (1769-1845) who was a prominent Providence merchant and farmer - there is a Sessions St in the city to this day. His family papers are now owned by the Rhode Island Historical Society. Sessions was just a year younger than Arnold, and may well have known him personally. Evans 31753; Alden 1523; Wegelin 7.
