Book Details: In 1806 Charles Brockden Brown began a semi-annual publication called the American Register or General Repository of History, Politics, and Science, which he conducted until his death in 1810. Each issue of this encyclopedia of current information contained five hundred pages, most of them devoted to "annals" of Europe and American, abstracts of laws, state papers, a section of news, and registers of deaths. There were also catalogs of British and American publications, some miscellaneous articles, and a little poetry.
Condition / Notes: This antique set is uniformly bound in marbled paper covers with a leather backstrip bearing stamped gilt lettering/ruling. There is moderate external age/wear. There is some internal weakness to the hinges and occasional loose pages in the mostly-solid text blocks. The pages show moderate age toning and scattered spotting/foxing.
