Some leaves trimmed a bit close to top edge, unobtrusive institutional stamp on verso of titlepage, minor repair in outer margin of last text leaf. Very good. A rare attack on the handling of the government in colonial Georgia. Thomas Stephens was the son of William Stephens, who succeeded Oglethorpe as governor of the Georgia colony. Despite his family association, Thomas Stephens was a leader of the discontented forces in the colony.
