The activities of the Continental Congress for the watershed year of 1776 are recorded comprehensively here in this first edition, first printing of ”Journals of Congress Containing The Proceedings In The Year, 1776.” Published by Order of Congress, by Robert Aitken: Philadelphia: 1777. This is one of just 532 copies which were printed in 1776, with substantially less than that available today, and is complete with the original printing of the Declaration of Independence on pages 241-246. According to text upon the title page, these records of the nation’s fledgling government were taken directly from the minutes of the Continental Congress. In addition to the Declaration of Independence, this volume chronicles the preparation for the Revolutionary War, as well as Richard Henry Lee’s 15 May proposal of independence. The book reads as a diary, with each day’s activities noted, including letters from ”General Washington” and resolutions such as one from 14 August 1776, in part, ”…his British majesty, in order to destroy our freedom and happiness has commenced against us a cruel and unprovoked war; and unable to engage Briton’s sufficient to execute his sanguinary measures has applied for aid to foreign princes, who are in the habit of selling the blood of their people for money…” Volume runs 512pp. plus index and measures 5.5” x 8.5”. Deckled-edge leaves are bound in paper boards, not original calf binding. Loss of backstrip reveals a thin layer of fabric affixed over a ribbed spine. Title page is missing the top 1.5”. Chipping to bottom edge of front board and a stamp of the previous owner on the front pastedown. In very good condition considering age. A precious record codifying the founding of the United States of America. Sold for $6,083.

1774 Journals of Congress, Volume I — The New Nation Takes Shape in This Vital First-Hand Account of American History

Volume I of the ”Journals of Congress,” the official record of the First and Second Continental Congresses which met from 1774-1775. Published in Philadelphia: R. Aitken: 1777. The First Continental Congress met in Philadelphia as a reaction to the ”Intolerable Acts” imposed by Great Britain after the Boston Tea Party. This Journal reflects the growing tension and independence of the colonists with its first entry, on 5 September 1774: ”…This House …being deeply affected with unhappy differences, which have long subsisted and are increasing, between Great-Britain and the American Colonies, do Resolve…to deliberate and determine upon wise and proper Measures…for the recovery and establishment of their just Rights and Liberties…” The representatives to the Congress would subsequently boycott British goods, establish an Army (with Washington as General) and Navy, appoint ambassadors, issue currency and obtain loans. It also records the order to print the proceedings of the Congress, of which this Journal is the result; on 26 September 1776, Congress authorized the printer Robert Aitken to produce a uniform edition of their Journals. Aitken combined the Journals of the First and Second Continental Congresses of 1774 and 1775 (originally published by Bradford in two separate volumes) into one volume, to form Volume I of this series. 310 deckled-edge leaves plus 12 pages of index are bound in 5.5” x 8.5” paper boards with unfinished surface, not in original leather biding. A 1.75” strip has been removed from the top of the title page and previous owner’s stamp is on front pastedown and once again in the book. Moderate toning and chipping to pages and boards with some paper loss to pages. In very good condition considering age. Sold for $2,384.
