London: The Bibliographical Society, Reprinted by the University Press, Oxford from the Transactions of the Bibliographical Society, 1934. Wraps. Good. Item #007301
Printed wraps. With a few title pages reproduced in the interior. A short history of the start of printing in New Hampshire, focusing mostly on the career of the printer Daniel Fowle and his relocation from Massachusetts to Portsmouth, New Hampshire in the 1750s. This includes a look at his first published book (Ames' Astronomical Diary), the New Hampshire Gazette, and his influence on other printers in the state, as well as a look at other printers in other regions of New Hampshire. GOOD condition, perhaps ex-library, with traces of a removed sticker from the lower front cover. Light pencil alphanumeric notation on the first endpaper. Some soiling, minor staining and general uneven offsetting/browning and fading to the wraps. Minor creasing, bumping and light chipping/tearing along the extremities.
