George Washington. The Writings of George Washington; Being His Correspondence, Addresses, Messages, and Other Papers, Official and Private. In Twelve Volumes. Boston: Ferdinand Andrews, [1837-1839].

    Twelve octavo volumes, complete. With additional text by Jared Sparks. Illustrations. Frontispiece portrait in Volume I.

    Full speckled calf. Spines ruled and lettered in gilt in compartments with four raised bands. Gilt tooling along edges. Recent olive endpapers. General wear to edges and light staining to a few boards, some spines rubbed. Volume II has a three-quarter-inch gouge to first compartment of spine, and Volume VIII has a quarter-inch gouge to bottom compartment. Binding of Volume I cracked, with a couple of signatures loose; the other volumes appear sound. Heavy foxing throughout. Volume I has an embossed library stamp on title-page. Volume I is in good condition, the other eleven volumes are in very good condition.

    Although this set is uniformly bound, it appears to be made up of volumes from different sets: Volume IV is dated 1837 on the title page; Volumes III, V, VI, IX, X, and XI are dated 1838; and Volumes I, II, VII, VIII, and XII are dated 1839.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
