Six silversmiths worked in Little Rest (now Kingston) Rhode Island in the late 18th century. Samuel Casey the silversmith/counterfeiter was the most famous, but the other five were also interesting characters. One was Samuel's brother in flesh but not crime, and another served on the jury which convicted Samuel... and so it goes. This copy of the book contains a copy of a handwritten letter from William Davis Miller to printer and Saturday Review of Literature editor Carl P. Rollins soliciting a review and mentioning that 150 copies of the book were printed, of which 100 were at that time for sale by Boston bookseller George Goodspeed. DESCRIPTION and CONDITION NOTES: Hardcover. 8"x10", 50 pages plus 10 black & white gravure plates, with several line illustrations in the text; printed in fine, deckle-edged paper with hand-marbled endpapers. Light cover wear and a little soil, slight moisture wrinkle and discoloration along the top edge, barely noticeable on the pages, a bit more pronounced on the endpapers. - - - - - - OVERSEAS BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: Our International shipping charges are based on the weight, when boxed for shipping, of each book -please check the postage chart for the cost of shipping to your country.

Please use the “Shipping & Payments” tab (above) to check the cost of shipping. We charge actual shipping based on weight, so sometimes large, heavy, inexpensive books can actually cost more to ship than the book itself costs –I know that seems odd, but the shipping cost is based on the actual weight of the book, not its selling price.

These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – please do not confuse them for additional shipping charges, which we never impose. We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as ‘gifts’ to avoid import duties, as this is illegal in most countries. - Member of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers.
