    Burr-Wilkinson Conspiracy

    Daniel Clark. Proofs of the Corruption of Gen. James Wilkinson, and of His Connexion with Aaron Burr, with a Full Refutation of his Slanderous Allegations in Relation to the Character of the Principal Witness Against Him. Philadelphia: Wm. Hall, Jun. & Geo. W. Pierie, Printers, 1809.

    First edition. Octavo. 199 pages.

    Later plain wrappers. Some slight chipping to wrappers. Moderate foxing throughout. Very good.

    After Clark provided much testimony against Wilkinson's involvement in Aaron Burr's scheme to set up an independent nation in the west, he found himself attacked by supporters of General Wilkinson. To clear his name, he penned this volume.

    Howes C431. Shaw 17221. Streeter Sale 1694.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
