[Worcester] Wigorniae, Massachusettensi: Excudebat Isaias Thomas, Jun, 1800 - Superior copy of this milestone in American printing history, with a most interesting bookplate: that of Chester Ashley (1791-1848) of Hudson, New York, who, after his graduation from Williams College, eventually settled in Little Rock, Arkansas, where he became one of the wealthiest and most powerful lawyers in the territory, and eventually "one of the greatest Senators Arkansas or any state has ever produced." - Josiah Hazen Shinn, Pioneers and Makers of Arkansas (1908) (BIBLE. N.T., GREEK) "Editio Prima Americana". First American printing of the Greek New Testament. 12mo. Pp. [1-5], 6-478, [2, ads]. Text in Greek. Contemporary tree calf, black morocco spine label. A few scuff marks, minor worming to foot of spine, flyleaves loosened at foot, usual slight browning of text, but overall a very nice copy, honest copy. With the bookplate of CHESTER ASHLEY; and loosely inserted is a church pew receipt to a Miss Ashley of Hudson [New York], dated 1842.
