Annals of Congress 1789-1824

Almost impossible to find in its original rare book edition, the 1997 reprints of these rare books sell online for between $4,000 – $6,000 and around $150 for each reprinted book. These original American State Papers rare books offered here, circa 1834 – 1838 are handsomely rebound in leather into near perfect condition except for some minimal tears on pages, stamp and pencil notations not affecting content. These rare books are a seminal set of U.S. government publications and a rich source of primary material on wide-ranging aspects of early American history. Volumes are a retrospective collection of largely Congressional, but also Executive, materials originating from 1789 through 1838, covering Congress from the Session of the First to the Second of the Twenty-Second Congress. The American State Papers, comprises a total of thirty-eight physical volumes and were originally sanctioned by an Act of Congress in 1831 in a limted edition of only 750 copies. The documents are grouped in 10 classes, each class arranged chronologically: 1. Foreign Affairs, 6 vols.; 2. Indian Affairs, 2 vols.; 3. Finance, 5 vols.; 4. Commerce and Navigation, 2 vols.; 5. Military Affairs, 7 vols.; 6. Naval Affairs, 4 vols.; 7. Post Office, 1v.; 8. Public Lands, 8v.; 9. Claims, 1v.; 10. Miscellaneous, 2v. There is an index for each class at the end of its final volume. American State Papers illuminates key moments in early American history as they occurred and influential decisions as they were made. This collection covers such historical events as Lewis and Clark’s Expedition, Burr’s Conspiracy and Arrest, the Treaty of the Creek Indians made by Andrew Jackson and much more. American State Papers also includes speeches and messages of Presidents Washington, Adams, Jefferson and Madison. Other documents address battles with the Seminole Indians, the capture of the British Fleet on Lake Champlain, depredations committed by Mounted Riflemen, exploration of the Pacific Ocean, free negroes in North Carolina, land for female academies, protection of the western frontier, trade with China and myriad other fascinating topics. The first volume starts with the Letter from the Federal Convention President, George Washington, to the President of Congress, Transmitting the Constitution: “Sir, We have now the honor to submit to the consideration of the United States in Congress assembled, that Constitution which has appeared to us the most advisable. The friends of our country have long seen and desired, that the power of making war, peace, and treaties, that of levying money and regulating commerce, and the correspondent executive and judicial authorities should be fully and effectually vested in the general government of the Union: But the impropriety of delegating such extensive trust to one body of men is evident — Hence results the necessity of a different organization…In all our deliberations on this subject we kept steadily in our view, that which appears to us the greatest interest of every true American, the consolidation of our Union, in which is involved our prosperity, felicity, safety, perhaps our national existence…With great respect, We have the honor to be, Sir, Your Excellency’s most obedient and humble servants, George Washington, President.” The first part of the first volume then quotes the Constitution in full and then goes into the great details of the first Congress in Federal Hall on Wall Street in New York on 4 March 1789 where Washington was to be inaugurated first President on 30 April 1789. The first Congress also notes the Treasury department being founded in September 1789 on Wall Street, the patent system being implemented on 10 April 1790 and the Compromise of 1790 where the U.S. Government moves to what is now Washington , D.C. In the compromise, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton come to an agreement: Madison agrees to not be “strenuous” in opposition for the assumption of state debts by the federal government; Hamilton agrees to support the capital site being above the Potomac. Thirty seven volumes, of course, follow. Sold for $3,766.
