Title: Eleazar Smith biographical sketch. Creator: Dickinson, Thomas A. Typed in Lawrence, Massachusetts while he was at Steelman & Fuller. Inclusive dates: 1881 Abstract:The Eleazar Smith biographical sketch is Thomas A. Dickinson's 1881 transcription of Smith's memoir, originally written in 1828. Smith described his experiences as a militiaman during the Revolutionary War, as well as his work as an inventor and machinist in Medfield and Walpole, Massachusetts. Eleazar Smith was born in Medfield, Massachusetts, on April 1, 1755. He had little to no formal education and made a living creating and repairing clocks and other machines, such as devices for making pins and nails, and for setting card teeth. In the summer of 1776, he enlisted in the Medfield militia. He was initially stationed at Ticonderoga, New York, where he was court-martialed on suspicion of counterfeiting currency in the fall of 1776; he later participated in a march to Rhode Island, where he deserted in October 1777.

John Henry Nash (1871-1947), American printer and bibliophile, born Woodbridge, Canada. After learning the printer's trade, he emigrated to the United States in 1894. He eventually became professor of typography at the University of Oregon. A vital and vigorous personality in American printing he made beautiful books in California under patronage which has permitted him to work without too much consideration for limits of time, materials and expense. All of Nash's books are collectors items and are highlighted in a 1932 edition by Lakeside Press, ranking Nash's books amongst the best printers and binders since William Morris.California History A book printed by John Henry Nash of San Francisco titled 'Exposition Addressed to the Chamber of Deputies of the Congress of the Union by Senor Don Carlos Antonio Carrillo, Deputy for Alta California Concerning the Regulation and Administration of the Pious Fund.

45 Libraries have copies of this 2 volume set. Covers British Senate speeches from 1625 to 1802. The first American Edition was printed after the First British Edition in 1807. A rare set. Naturally many of the speeches in the second volume are concerned with the American colonies and the what is termed 'obstreperous behavior' of their inhabitants...Hazlitt introduces the various speakers with wonderfully opinionated comments that range from a few lines in length to numerous pages (Edmund Burke & Charles James Fox to name a few). Geoffry Keynes suggests that the odd dating of the two volumes is the result of predating Volume I as it was produced in late 1809 but neglecting to do so in Volume II. Ther were two additional editions of 1810, issued in Brooklyn and New York. [Keynes, p. 141. Sabin 3124. Shaw & Shoemaker 17730]. In period leather swirled and decorated boards with some fox and staining as is usual from books and paper of this period. A fine set with the usual abrasions and other tears to the leat ...
