Description:

12mo. later full polished brown calf ruled in gilt, gilt decorated spine with raised bands and green gilt lettered morocco labels, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, by Pratt. The scarce first edition of David Humphreys' celebrated and lasting biography of Revolutionary War General Israel Putnam. Humphreys himself performed heroically during the Revolution, and was much admired by George Washington. The book is still a useful source, containing a storehouse of firsthand anecdotes regarding Putnam's wartime exploits. Humphreys "had a natural talent or military science, and there are few more intelligent contemporary pictures of certain important campaigns, notably the battle of Long Island and the retreat from Harlem, than those contained in his Essay. In this he wrote as he fought, coolly and vigorously, and the book remains a testimonial to Putnam, to the effort and sacrifice of those stirring days, and to Humphreys own victorious good sense" -DAB. [Howes (D)794. Evans 21160. Trumbull 870. Sabin 33804. Learned 1465. DAB IX, pp. 373-75]. Bookseller Inventory #
