THE HISTORY AND ANTIQUITIES OF NEW ENGLAND, NEW YORK, AND NEW JERSEY...

Worcester: Dorr, Howland & Co., 1841. 8vo, original full brown calf; spine intricately decorated and lettered in gilt. viii, (9)–576 pages; engraved frontispiece; engraved hand-colored folding map; numerous woodcut illustrations in the text, including depictions of both sides of a Pine Tree shilling and the copper coins of New Jersey, Massachusetts and Connecticut. Some foxing throughout, as is apparently typical of this title. Very good or better. Item #5829

Important for the early illustrations of Massachusetts silver and the state coppers of New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts: these are quite possibly the earliest depictions of the Connecticut and Massachusetts coppers. Pages 523–527 comprise an account of “Coinage, Bills of Credit, &c.,” and include the numismatic illustrations noted. This is the nicest copy we have handled. Howes B124. Sigler 158 (slightly different title).

Price: $650.00
