✓ 328. GREENE (NATHANAEL). History of Great Britain, James I. to the Revolution, 1688. New edn., revised, with Complete Index. S vols. 8vo, original calf. Fine copy
With contemporary autograph signature of Nathanael Greene (sic) in each volume, above which (also in each volume) appears the signature "Harriet Eliza Ward." Though, iu this instance, the signature of Nathanael Greene differs somewhat from the ordinary facsimiles of the General's autograph, the late owner avers that the volumes were had from a member of the family and believed to be authentic.
And the credence due to this statement seems to be further strengthened by the fact that General Greene's family married into, and was for years on terms of close intimacy with, that of Governor Ward of Rhode Island; by the spelling of the name 'Nathanael" (which is uncommon), and by the knowledge we have from his Biographers, who concur that Hume was one of the General's favorite authors. See B.F. French's Biographia Americana," p. 131, in reference to Gen'l Greene." His portable library consisted of Hume, Locke, Shakespear, Milton, and others, etc., etc." (Believed to be genuine, though sold not subject to return.)
