1 SIR WILLIAM BLACKSTONE Blackstone's Commentaries: VOLUME 2 PART 2: WITH HANDWRITTEN NOTES, OBSERVATIONS AND COMMENTS BY TWO NOTED LOYALISTS - WILLIAM WYLLY AND CADWALLADER D. COLDEN
1810 Fair+ 
On offer is an interesting and original book of historical significance being an inscribed copy of Blackstone's Commentaries Volume Two, Part Two, having further manuscript notes handwritten by two noted Loyalists. This copy belonged to Loyalist William Wylly as evidenced by his bookplate. He was the first King's Council in New Brunswick, later living in the Bahamas, appointed solicitor-general and surrogate of the court of vice-admiralty. In 1804 he was appointed advocate-general of the vice-admiralty court, in 1812 he became chief justice, and in 1822 chief justice of the island of St. Vincent. The stamped inscription states: To his friend Cd. D. Colden, aka Cadwallader D. Colden, also a Loyalist during the Revolution. Colden studied law under Wylly. He was mayor of New York from 1818 - 1821 and also served as Senator from 1825-1827. This copy has been bound so that every other page is blank, leaving space for hand-written notes, etc. Some of the blank pages have original handwriting in two different hands, older writing in ink, presumably Wylly's and more recent pencil writing, most likely Colden's. The book begins on page 257 and goes up to page 520, followed by the appendix and the index, and a few more pages of writing appearing to be an additional or amended handwritten index. Both covers are detached. But the text block is still tight. There is no title page, nor any publishing information save for the blindstamped title treatment of the spine but we suspect this was a special editor's copy. Overall Fair+.
