Beschreibung

8vo, old leather, rubbed and worn, covers detached, 504; 524; 519pp. Two of the three with eighteenth century Armorial bookplates of Thomas Heath, Merchant of Essex. More appealing, each bears the 1793 ownership signature of Chauncey Goodrich [1759-1815], Connecticut lawyer, who served in Congress as both member of the House and as Senator. Even better, however, Volumes XI and XII are displaying provenance from the library of Roger Viets ("ROGER VIETS | HIS BOOK | A. D. 1775" is stamped on the free front endpaper), the Loyalist minister and poet from Simsbury CT, who wound up in 1786-1787 removing self and family to the more welcoming political climates of Digby NS, where he died in 1811. His legacy is memorable: the man was once described as "a Strange Mortal: Whimsical, Quiddling, Stingy, Close-Shin'd, Strait-laced, Iron found," but he also saw published a memorable poem on Annapolis-Royal, one of the earliest separate imprints made in British North America [Halifax, 1788].
