Boston: David Clapp, 1846. First printed edition [1846] of the manuscript detailing the early history of Dorchester, Massachusetts, beginning with the planning of the new settlers ("adventurers") while still in England in 1629 (they arrived at Nantasket in 1630). The second in a series published by the Dorchester Antiquarian and Historical Society (there were a total of three published during the 1840's); this one is by far the most difficult to find. Includes a double page facsimile of signatures as of 1641. Original printed boards with black cloth spine, 95 pages plus a one page advertisement for number one in the series. Also includes a slip laid loosely in the front with the names of five Justices of the Peace which may or may not have anything to do with the book itself. Very good with some light cover wear, good hinges, firm binding, pages clean and free from chips, tears, markings, names, etc., with some very light scattered foxing. Very clean and sound copy.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. First Edition.
