About this Item

NEW JERSEY. LAWS. Acts of the General Assembly of the Province of New- Jersey, from the Surrender of the Government to Queen Anne, on the 17th Day of April, in the Year of Our Lord 1702, to the 14th Day of January 1776 . By Samuel Allinson. Burlington: Isaac Collins, 1776. Folio. viii, 493, [1], 6, 6, 4, 4, 3, [1], 15 p. Modern calf-backed marbled boards, very skillfully executed in period style. The usual foxing and browning present in all copies, occasional minor spotting, else a very good, desirable copy in a handsome and correct period-style binding. A compilation of all the laws in force in New Jersey in 1776. Though begun several years earlier, publication was delayed by Governor William Franklin's constant quarrels with the assembly, the outbreak of hostilities, and, finally, as Allinson notes in his preface, the inability to obtain sufficient paper, ". the Want of [which] stop'd the Press several Weeks at sundry Times, until more could be manufactured." The quality of the paper varied considerably, and all copies exhibit differing degrees of foxing and browning from gathering to gathering. There are several contemporary manuscript corrections, also present in all copies and probably done in the printer's shop. For a detailed account of the evolution and printing history of Allinson's Laws, see Felcone, New Jersey Books, 158, and Felcone, Printing in New Jersey, 1754-1800, 214. Evans 14911; ESTC W6511.
