ACCOUNT OF THE EUROPEAN SETTLEMENTS IN AMERICA IN SIX PARTS. IN TWO VOLUMES (2 Volumes)
by [Edmund Burke]
London: R. and J. Dodsley, 1757. First Edition. Very Good binding. The first edition set of an important history of the European expansion into the New World, which Howes considered the "best contemporary account". Probably a married set, as Volume I has the ex-libris of "Wm. A. Phillips" of Salina, Kansas, while Volume II has the signature of the well-known South Carolina planter Peter Porcher. Each volume with an engraved folding map by Emanuel Brown, of South and North America. Volume I has lengthy notes about the book on the flyleaf, in an early hand. In period calf bindings, with double gilt fillets to the perimeter of the boards, raised bands and volume numbers stamped in gilt. Volume II has a morocco title label, lacking in Volume I. The boards of Volume I have been discreetly reattached. (Sabin 9282; Howes B974). Very Good binding. (Inventory #: 274580)
