The Life of Paul Jones from original documents in the possession of John Henry Sherburne, Esq., Register of the Navy of the United States. FIRST EDITION.
John Murray. 1825 Half title. Uncut in orig. drab boards, paper spine label, price 7s. 6d.; sl. rubbing, especially to hinges. A very good copy as originally published.'Having decided to issue ... a Life of Paul Jones based on the same material as the Life by Sherburne (published in America) ... Murray entrusted the manuscript to young Disraeli to prepare it for the press ... [and] the work appeared with a preface from his pen. The original manuscript ... shows that Disraeli's share in it was limited to the introduction ... and a word or phrase where the excision of a passage rendered it necessary.'
