Leather cover. 7 ½” x 4 ¾” with 208 numbered pages of which 107 pages are an extensive number of appendices. This effort was published about March 1800 based on Editor’s Dedication and Advertisement page. That was only about 3 ½ months from the actual date of Washington's death. Extensive collection of many speeches and orders most signed in print and includes Washington, Adams, Lear and others. Contains letter accepting command of army, Farewell Address to Army, Inaugural speech, Funeral Orations, Order of Procession, Congressional Resolutions of honor and many more. Off-set printing. Other than the actual congressional records or some newspaper accounts we think this is the first attempt to collate this information together in book form as part of a short biography. Has aged well but it does show aging. Leather a bit worn including the spine. Still tightly bound. Pages are a bit wavy throughout. The earliest biography we have had for a President.
