PROCEEDINGS ON THE IMPEACHMENT OF WILLIAM - [Blount, William] - 1799. 
Philadelphia, 1799. 102pp. Modern half morocco and cloth. Quite browned and foxed, else a very good copy, untrimmed. Official proceedings of the trial of Tennessee senator William Blount, the first United States federal official against whom impeachment charges were brought. Blount was heavily involved in land speculation in the South and feared that France would gain control of the Mississippi River. He settled into a conspiracy in which England would seize Louisiana and Florida, and his investments would be protected. The Senate voted to expel Blount, and the House brought impeachment proceedings against him, which were dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. HOWES B548, "aa." SERVIES 732. COHEN 14450. EVANS 36561. SABIN 6002.
