1 (Davis, John) The First Settlers of Virginia, an Historical Novel Exhibiting a View of the The Rise and Progress of the Colony At James Town, a Picture of Indian Manners, Etc.
New York I. Riley and Co. 1805 Second Edition; First Printing Very Good 
12mo; The scarce 1805, 2nd Edition, but in need of some binding attention: ex-library with bookplate on front endpaper and pocket at the rear. The original calf boards are separated and badly worn (front board is broken at the top right corner) . The library rebound the book many years ago and there is library tape on the spine. The "internals" of the book itself are foxed, but fairly fresh and clean - well worth rebinding. Pgs. 275 - 284 are a "Memoir of the Author. " This is the first account of the John Smith/Pocahontas (here spelled Pokahontas) story in fictional form. Pg. 211 reads: "The fine eyes of Pokahontas were raised towards heaven. Her physiognomy was full of grace, and her lips, parted by such a smile as angels wear, seemed to utter in secret the devotion of her breast. "
