Philadelphia: James Kay, Jun. & Brother, 1837. First Edition. Hardcover. Octavos, 2 volumes; VG; newly rebound in quarter light brown leather, dark brown leather boards, marbled endpapers; paneled spines with gilt lettering; scattered pencil markings; very mild age-toning; extremely scarce; shelved case 1. Full title continues: for the District of Virginia and North Carolina, from 1802 to 1833 inclusive; "Brockenbrough...took certain liberties with Marshall's drafts, regularizing his spelling and punctuation, for example, and occasionally improving what he regarded as infelicitous phrasing. He misdated certain opinions and in one instance misidentified an opinion as issuing from the circuit court at Richmond in 1819 that in fact was prepared for a Supreme Court Case of 1813" [The Brig Caroline v. U.S., 11 U.S. (7 Cranch) 496 (1813)] The original manuscript survives for sixty-four of the eighty-eight court opinions reported by Brockenbrough. Late in life, Marshall gave his circuit drafts to Brockenbrough, who, after publishing them in 1837, presented them to the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia, where they repose today.
