Description

Excerpt from A Catalogue of the Washington Collection in the Boston Athenaeum: In Four Parts The greater number of these books, ' they say, Contain Washington's autograph. All which so distinguished, and next after them, those which were presenta tion copies to him, and, next to them, those which contain his book-plate, or can in any other way be proved to have been in his possession, would be regarded even in Europe as curiosities of great interest and value, and would command prices which might seem incredible to one unacquainted with the sums given for objects associated with the memory of highly distinguished men.
