About this Item

NEW YORK. LAWS. Acts of Assembly Passed in the Province of New-York, from 1691, to 1725. New York: William Bradford, 1726. Fol. [10], 124 [i.e., 128], 121-252, 261-319 p. Later half morocco, worn and scuffed at the entremities. Eight leaves in neat facsimile: title, the four-leaf index, leaves 2K1-2, and leaf 23V2. Leaves 2E2-G2 supplied from another copy. Library stamp on pastedown and title, occasional dampstaining, and the foxing and moderate browning inherent in American books of this date. Withal, an entirely respectable copy of a very rare book. While the earliest ownership signature has been lined through and is difficult to decipher, later signatures are Henry Sands 1800, Caleb S. Riggs, and Saml. R. Betts 1827. The very rare 1726 "Bradford" compilation of the earliest laws of New York, printed by New York's, and the Middle Colonies', first printer. Eight leaves are in neat facsimile and five leaves were long ago supplied from another copy, but otherwise this is a very satisfactory copy. Only two other copies have been sold at auction in the last forty years. Law compilations of this date from the Middle Colonies are extremely rare, and one must take what one can find. Evans 2785, 2569; Tower Collection 613; ESTC W11515, W16374. Bookseller Inventory # 14615
