    Washington, George [James Rivington, Compiler/Editor]:  Epistles Domestic, Confidential, And Official, From General Washington, Written About The Commencement Of The American Contest, When He Entered On The Command Of The Army Of The United States.  New York: James Rivington, 1796.

A small octavo measuring 7 7/8" by 4 1/2" with a 1/2" chip to the leather at the heel of the spine a 1/8" chip to the leather at the head of the spine light rubbing and wear to the edges of the boards. There is an early prior owner's name on the first free end page and a second prior owner's name at the upper edge of the title page. Per Howes, "The first seven letters are Tory forgeries previously printed as Letters from General Washington to several of his friends." As pointed out by Sabin, this copy is unique as it holds the inserted letter from Timothy Pickering which copies President Washington's letter of March 3, 1797 disavowing the forged letters noted above. Secondly, the frontispiece portrait of President Washington is engraved by "L. Hill" instead of an engraving by Rollinson which appears in most copies of this title. Finally, as Evans points out, complete copies of this title should have a blank leaf following page xiv. This copy has the blank leaf. 303 pages of text illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of President Washington. Per Howes, "The first seven letters are Tory forgeries previously printed as Letters from General Washington to several of his friends." Despite these forgeries, Howes considers this title to be "quite scarce". (Howes, W-134; Sabin, 101742; Evans, 30392)
