PLAN OF THE NEW CONSTITUTION FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; AN AUTHENTIC COPY OF THE FRENCH CONSTITUTION; LA CONSTITUTION FRANCOISE; NEW CONSTITUTION OF THE GOVERNMENT OF POLAND; [4 WORKS IN ONE VOL 1791]
Debrett. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1791-1792. Hardcover. Constitution; 18th Century; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; [2], 84; [2] 78; [2], 110; [4], 32; 8 pages; An Authentic Copy of the French Constitution; La Constitution Francoise; New Constitution of the Government of Poland; Plan of the New Constitution for the United States of America. Together 4 works in one volume. All printed for Debrett. Marbled boards with irregularly-cut half leather, this very scarce early volume contains four important governmental publications printed by J. Debrett. These printings -- the second of which is in French -- are beautifully typeset in typical 18th Century typefaces with fancy ligatures on fine deckled pages. The Plan of the New Constitution for the United States contains a preface written by the editor that speaks of the "sudden rise of a new empire in the world"; the constitution was adopted only five years previous. Marbled boards rubbed, the pages are all intact with light toning. The front board has a small interior gap from the text block which probably occurred at binding. The book is solid and squarely bound. The volume bears two nicely inscribed period inscriptions, one with the name of Noah Wood, a city father of Syracuse, New York. The book measures approximately 5.25" x 9" and, in addition to the independently numbered components, includes an 8 page catalog of other books printed for J. Debrett.
