79 Morris, Robert, compiler and Stan V. Henkels (Auction Merchant) The Confidential Correspondence of Robert Morris : the Great Financier of the Revolution and Signer of the Declaration of Independence [Including] "Purchasers Names and Prices" and Hamilton's Confidential Letter to Robert Morris on the Government of New York
Philadelphia Stan V. Henkels 1917 First Edition; First Printing 1/2 leather Very Good 
facsimile documents; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 223 pages; The original auction catalog bound together with two separate items, the 4 page list of lots, prices realized and purchaser by name, as well as a separately paged reprinting of Hamilton's "Confidential Letter... On the Governement of New York," one page reproduced in facsimile. 4, [3], 8, [1], 208 pp. Period rebinding in 1/2 polished black leather and patterned paper covered boards. Parts bound in sequentially: Purcaser names/Prices; Hamilton's Letter; Full catalog. Original wraps of the auction catalog are bound in. Four highlight documents present in folding facsimile, bound in with contents. Contents trimmed for rebinding, with contemporary penciled price notes in margins only present in part. The binding has been professionally restored; rebacked with original spine materials laid down and gilt tooling of missing matter artfully blended with the period binding. Hinges strengthened. Perhaps the single most important cache of revolutionary era documents brought for sale, very infrequently seen in the market in the original catalog presentation. The 4 page list of prices realized and buyers by name appended at front is a rarity itself. The aggresive buyers are well-known and not surprising - Library of Congress, Sabin, Pierce & Scopes, F. D. Roosevelt, Rosenbach, Goodyear, Paltsits, etc. A well preserved example with the extra material not usually encountered - in a professionally restored example of a period binding. Scarce. VG thus
