London: J. Dodsley, 1779. Second Edition. Hardcover. Bound in contemporary calf-backed boards. Though not a First Edition, still an early eighteenth-century printing of one of the most desirable volumes of this prestigious series as this year contains two of the most important documents in American history. Where the text states "The history of the present ----- of --------- ------------- is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations," someone has added in ink in an early hand "King of Great Britain." Early ink name crossed out on the title page, light to moderate foxing; pages 255 to 258 in the second section lacking, otherwise complete with the entire text of the Declaration and the Articles present.
