James, James Alton (ed). GEORGE ROGERS CLARK PAPERS 1771-1781. Springfield: Trustees of the Illinois State Historical Library, [Illinois Printing Company, Danville, Ill.], 1912. 715 pages. 23 cm.

First edition. Collections of the Illinois State Historical Library, Volume VIII. Virginia Series, Volume III. Original buckram cloth, lightly worn with rubbed edges. A very good copy.

"The present volume, the third of the Virginia Series, contains all the available Clark papers prior to November, 1781. In addition to the Clark papers, it has seemed best to include many letters written to and about Clark which have not heretofore been printed and which are believed to be essential to the explanation of his work. The aim throughout has been to interpret events connected with the chief phases of the Revolution in the West." - Preface.
