Librairie Le Feu Follet ]. The June 1st, maiden issue of "National Magazine", which represents the first magazine ever published in Virginia, the first magazine printing of the Virginia Constitution and Kentucky Resolutions, and "an extraordinary contemporary resource for the anti-Federalist, Jeffersonian, Strict Constructionist philosophy of the Virginia School, a philosophy that Virginians developed to oppose the policies of Alexander Hamilton and the Washington-Adams administrations " from "The Remnant Trust". This, the "first National Magazine", was issued in Richmond by its young publisher and editor, James Lyon, and was printed semi-quarterly.
Six issues all told were published in Richmond, "after which Lyon removed to the new seat of the Federal government". This orginal issue has been beautifully and skillfully re-bound in by the Thistle Bindery of Florence, MA and has had both its original light-brown wrappers seemlessly bound-in. The wrappers show chipping along the edges and a degree of inevitable wear but, miraculously, almost no loss to the titling. Crisp new endsheets and thick card wrappers nicely protect the fragile original text, which has held up surprisingly well. Octavo, original pgs. An impressive, important piece of Americana.
