Brackenridge,Henry Marie. Unpublished Abridgment of Wirt’s Life of Patrick Henry

A unique item, it appears that H.M. Brackenridge (writer, lawyer, Whig Congressman) attempted to abridge the 7th edition of Wirt's Life of Patrick Henry. While Brackenridge had numerous other books published, the abridgment of Life of Henry does not appear to have ever been published per a review of OCLC.


Front board detached, rear almost. Some foxing and browning to pages. Text block solid; all edges marbled. As is consistent with an attempt to abridge a 400+ page book, it includes a plethora of ink annotations in Brackenridge's hand.
