    Description

    The Life of George Washington. Maps and Subscriber's Names. 18 pp. text with ten double-page fold-out black and white maps, 9" x 11", (Philadelphia: C. P. Wayne, 1807), marbled covers, leather spine. Library plate inside cover claims ownership by William Gookin of Rutledge (Vermont). Front cover worn and separated, moderate foxing throughout, binding somewhat loose. Internally very good and in overall good condition. This important map collection supplements Chief Justice John Marshall's 1807 biography of Washington by giving the reader visual points of reference to Washington's Revolutionary War battles. The subscriber list is, in and of itself, a fascinating parade of period luminaries.
