About This Item

Beautifully rebound 1809 volume by poet Thomas Campbell, describing the poem Wyoming Valley of Pennsylvania and the massacre that occurred there on July 3, 1778. On that day, more than three hundred American Revolutionaries died at the hands of Loyalists and their Iroquois allies. 134 pages of the original 1809 publication, with some browning and a bit of foxing of the first few pages. The later rebinding features red/green hand marbling with maroon leather corners and spine, very handsome.
