Washington signed (“G. Washington”) on the first page of the book
that was printed for him in 1978.

(Fox News)-A book owned by George Washington and containing his own
annotated copy of the Constitution sold Friday for almost $10 million at
Christie’s, more than three times what it was expected to draw.

A fierce bidding war between two unidentified parties forced the price up,
and applause erupted in the venerable auction house when the hammer
came down and the 223-year-old book sold for $9,826,500 to the Mount
Vernon Ladies Association.

The Acts of Congress volume includes a copy of the Constitution, a draft
of the Bill of Rights, and acts creating the executive, State and Treasury
department.
