Men and Times of the Revolution; or, Memoirs of Elkanah Watson...
Author: Watson, Ekanah
Publisher: Dana and Company, 1857 New York

Book. Book condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall Second edition (stated). Half-leather binding with marbled cover and endpapers. Subtitle: "including his Journals of Travels in Europe and America, From the Year 1777 to 1842, and His Correspondence with Public Men, and Reminiscences and Incidents of the American Revolution." Edited by his son, Winslow C. Watson. "My father, from the age of nineteen, nearly to the close of his life, which was prolonged to more than four-score years, was in the habit of recording his observations of men and incidents, as the events occurred to which they relate. This period included the era of the War of Independence, and of those amazing mutations which have marked the transformation of dependent colonies into a mighty nation; and of a rude and sequestered wilderness into a territory teeming with beauty, cultivation and affluence. In Europe and America he was in the midst of the scenes of this pregnant era, an intimate associate with many of the individuals who impelled or guided these changes, and a vigilant observer of the occurrences connected with their development. The journals of my father form a large body of manuscript, which, in connection with a multiplicity of publications on many and various subject, and a very extensive correspondence with some of the most eminent men of our annals, comprise many volumes. These materials constitute the elements of the work I now respectfully submit to the public.." 557 pages with index. Book is in VERY GOOD condition; some edgewear, but less wear than expected of a book of this age and genre. No dust jacket.
