Albany, [NY]: Whiting, Leavenworth and Whiting, 1802. First edition. 8vo. 796 pp. Original blue-grey paper over boards (soiled), uncut, front board loose, rear board detached, paper spine perished, with an 8-line printed notice (rubbed) pasted to the front cover from the publishers to their subscribers, appealing to their subscribers the justice of raising the price because the book is much larger than anticipated. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 3271. SABIN 19101. Full account of the debate, on a motion of John Breckenridge of Kentucky, which preceded repeal of the controversial Judiciary Act of 1801, seen by the incoming Jeffersonians chiefly as a means of providing employment for defeated Federalists. "This action, at least as partisan as that of 1801, restored the Judiciary Act of 1789 to full force. The repeal debate thoroughly canvassed the issue of judicial review, set forth the Jeffersonian theory of legislative supremacy and furnished the political setting for Marbury v. Madison." --DAH.
