12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 123 pages; Contemporary full calf with red spine label, gilt. Prior ownership signature of highly respected jurist Daniel Agnew, who from 1873-1879 held position as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. Agnew's ownership inscriptions to front endpage and title page dated 1831. Black leather title with "M. Agnew" stamped in gilt, with the far left of the label chipped and presumably missing an initial. An undated ownership inscription "R. Moore" on the front endpage is neatly crossed out with a single line but an identical signature on the contents page is unmarred. Presumably the signature is that of Agnew's Father-in-law, Robert Moore, two term congressman from Beaver County who died in 1831. Calf leather with some spots of light rubbing and skinning along the edges. Soundly bound though a bit tender in the joints. 3/8 inch chip missing from the crown of spine. Gilt titling to label bright. Just very mild foxing here and there to contents. Sound attractive copy with provenance. Aside from the small piece out at the crown a VG copy.
