Harrisburg, PA: Gustavus S. Peters, 1828. Boards. The uncommon 1828 1st edition of this pocket guide to addressing one's basic legal needs without incurring the expense of hiring an attorney (a timeless desire, no doubt as pressing today as in the early 19th century). A solid, well-preserved copy to boot of the fragile 64mo. Tight and VG in its dark-brown marbled boards, with a calf-backed spine. Pronounced foxing at the pastedowns and endsheets and, less so, to the preliminaries. Beyond this, though, no writing or markings of any kind. Strong binding and hinges, the text completely unrubbed and eminently readable. Scarce as such, in its original appreance. A nice example of early legal history -- and a nice piece of Americana. Very Good. Item #16498
