Description:
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. Smith married… Read more

Description:
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. There 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… Read more
