LE FÉDÉRALISTE, OU COLLECTION DE QUELQUES ÉCRITS EN FAVEUR DE LA CONSTITUTION PROPOSÉE AUX ÉTATS-UNIS DE L'AMÉRIQUE, PAR LA CONVENTION CONVOQUÉE EN 1787
Paris: Chez Buisson, 1792.. Two volumes. [5],xxii-lii,366; [4],511pp. Half title in each volume. Contemporary French speckled calf, spines gilt, gilt morocco labels. A few instances of neat, contemporary ink marginalia. Light staining in upper margin of second half of first volume. Overall, a very handsome set, in lovely original condition. First French edition, variant issue, of this classic of American political theory. This is also the first edition to identify the otherwise anonymous authors, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay. Another French edition, with a long introduction by M. Trudaine de la Sablière, the French translator, was also published by Buisson in 1792, and its omission explains the pagination in the present item. The present variant retains the original titlepage, with John Jay's name misspelled as "Gay," and uses the same sheets from the other 1792 printing. This French translation was the first to appear after the original first printing of 1788, in accord with the definite sympathies which existed between the two countries. HOWES H114, "aa." SABIN 23993. FORD 18. GROLIER AMERICAN 100, 19. PRINTING & THE MIND OF MAN 234.
