THE LIFE OF GEN. FRANCIS MARION, A CELEBRATED PARTIZAN OFFICER, IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR, AGAINST THE BRITISH AND TORIES, IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND GEORGIA
Baltimore, 1815. 12mo. Contemporary calf, neatly rebacked, retaining original gilt spine and leather label. Ownership inscription of Lawrence Washington on front flyleaf and in text. Small wormhole through center of text block. Light to moderate foxing and tanning. About good. "Third edition improved." "General Horry furnished the facts, Parson Weems the rhetoric; so much of it that Horry became indignant and disclaimed all connection with the book. Unabashed, Weems continued its publication through many editions" - Howes. Marion was a hero of the Revolution, and it was largely due to his actions and strategy that the turning point came in the South. Horry was his most trusted officer; his biography of Marion helped to establish the general as the legendary "Swamp Fox." Sabin does not note this edition. With the ownership inscription of Lawrence Washington, nephew of the first President.
