2 Merryweather, George

Kings, the Devil's Viceroys and Representatives on Earth
New York
George Merryweather ( Privately Published )
1838

First Edition
Half-Leather
Fair


8vo - over 7" - 9" tall


Hardcover, 1st edition. This is a very hard to find work, nowadays only available in cheap reprints - THIS IS THE ORIGINAL FROM 1838. Some catalogues list this work as being written by an unknown author using the pseudonym George Merryweather, but this is inaccurate. Merryweather was born in 1769 in North Yorkshire, England and he died Feb. 22, 1852 in Pontiac Oakland County Michigan, USA. The following obituary appeared in the "Pontiac Jacksonian" on March 10, 1852: DIED"At Pontiac, Feb 22, George Merryweather, Esq., in the eighty-third year of his age. He was a native of England and of high respectability. He came to the United States in 1836, and has been much respected by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. He had early in life chosen the good part, and continued to live the life of a christian, and consequently, "the end of his mortal existence was peace," enjoying cheerful hope of blessed immortality. He wrote and published a book exposing the iniquities of the monarchial governments of Europe, entitled--"Kings, the Devil's Viceroys and Representatives on Earth." Its statement of facts, pertinent remarks and admonitions, are well adapted to awaken the people to a sense of the evils which they suffer by the means of selfish and unprincipled rulers." the book contains much on British and European monarchy, but also an interesting brief chapter on Canada. In original binding with leather spine and corners. Backstrip has some gilt rules, top two upper compartments are, sadly, lost. Boards may have been recovered at some point, but hard to say now. Front hinge is pretty much detached. Back hinge weak. Both boards present a convex warp. Pages 297 to 304 omitted, but replaced with pages 217 to 224. These missing pages can be provided in a plain paper document if requested. Despite this catalog of defects, the interior pages are all quite fine - clean, remarkably bright and very sound.
