Dana, Samuel Whittlesey:

YALE-COLLEGE SUBJECT TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY.

New-Haven: 1784 44pp, stitched. Modern plain wraps. Untrimmed, partly uncut. Tanned, Good+ or Very Good. Dana, a distinguished lawyer and Federalist statesman, argues in his first publication for "the right of the General Assembly to inspect, regulate and reform the corporation of Yale-College in New-Haven." This was a hot issue of the day, and Dana's piece provides much insight on contemporary views of the nature of private corporations, foreshadowing the Dartmouth College Case. It is also highly useful for its detailed history of the creation of the College. "Written with the concurrence of the Rev. Dr. Timothy Dwight; and also with the approval of the writer's father, Rev. Dr. James Dana" [Pequot Library]. FIRST EDITION. Evans 18434. Trumbull 555. Pequot Library 195. Cohen 4808.
