Jared Sparks, Writings of George Washington, 12 Vols.

This set, like every other complete 12 volume set I know of, is a mixture of various Boston publishers of the 1830’s. Volume one, and most of the others, bear the imprint of Ferdinand Andrews, 1838. Volume 5 is the earliest date at 1834. Eleven of the twelve are in excellent condition with only volume one showing some wear and a bit of worm damage in a lower corner of the first few pages. All are in their original leather. There is an early owner’s signature “William Munroe”
