Book Description Printed at the Office of the "Louisiana Courier", New Orleans, 1848. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First Edition; First Printing. 75, 75 pages; Early twentieth century full tan buckram, red label lettered in gilt on spine. This copy was once the property of the Library of Congress, with small paper label mounted to the front cover, the LC engraved bookplate mounted to the front paste down endpaper, tiny rubber stamps at the foot of both the English and French title pages ("L.C. copy 2"), pencil notes at the top of the French title page, and the Library of Congress Surplus-Duplicate stamp in blue ink on the rear free endpaper -- (which makes this copy legal to buy, sell and own). An excellent copy, with these minor library marks and four lower corners neatly folded up (which had been left "long" by accident of the binder's plow). OCLC Number: 65113311 [Two locations only: Yale and Univ. Minnesota Law Library]. Louisiana had been admitted to the U. S. as a state on April 30, 1812, the ninth anniversary of the Louisiana Purchase. A second state constitution was adopted in 1845, hence the reference here to the "Second Legislature" of the state. Of particular note among the Acts published in these pages was an act to pay for the free public schools (1846,47, & 48) which had been called for in the new constitution, and another act to provide for land for the building of the public schools. Slaves and slavery, always a contentious issue, received attention here. The legislators decreed that children born to Slaves who had been imprisoned in the Penitentiary would become State property, to be sold at age ten for cash, which was to be paid to the State Treasurer, the funds dedicated to support the Public Schools. Various improvement to the bayous, rivers and harbors of the state were comissioned, with construction of roads and levees, and a toll bridge on the bayou Ramos. The single longest and most detailed act provides for the acquisition of a right-of-way and construction of a "rail road from the parish of St. Landry to the Mississippi river." There is much of interest relating to New Orleans, including a Law Library for the city's Bar Association, and the detailed and specific extention of the "sole and exclusive privilege of introducing and vending gas-lights to the city of Lafayette . to James H. Caldwell, for twenty years. [This was the Faubourg Lafayette, including the Garden District, now incorporated into New Orleans as the 10th and 11th Wards]. Modern developments were taken into account, including the provision that operators of the magnetic telegraph "might not transmit messages which can in any manner tend to defeat the ends of justice." There was an act to pay (handsomely: $600) the electors of the State in the recent Presidential election of 1848 -- [in which they cast their votes for the first, and only, U.S. President to have been from Louisiana: Zachary Taylor. With the English and French text of all laws and acts given on facing pages, as was usual for most of the early official publications of Louisiana. Now a rare book. Seller Inventory # 41984

Book Description John Gibson- State Printer, New Orleans, 1828. 199, [1 blank] pp. Disbound. English and French on facing pages, may lack the French title page. Good+.

Book Description John Gibson- State Printer, New Orleans, 1828. 211, [1 blank]; 199, [1 blank] pp. The 1827 Acts are bound in later cloth, with morocco spine labels and an old law library gilt stamp at base of spine; bookplate on front pastedown; text lightly to moderately toned or foxed.
