About this Item

[2],36,[1]pp. Expertly bound to style in period marbled paper wrappers. Provenance: Jacob Motte An important early Charleston, South Carolina imprint: regulating the Indian Trade. Several acts are included in this imprint, including appointing a comptroller to preventing "excessive and deceitful Gaming." Most interesting among these laws is an act for regulating trade and encouraging good relations with the local Indians. The official printer of South Carolina at this time, Peter Timothy, was the son of the proto-printer of the state, Lewis Timothy, and (as recorded by an article by Douglas C. McMurtrie) was a regular correspondent with Benjamin Franklin (who had helped his father establish the press). With provenance to Jacob Motte, plantation owner and political figure in colonial South Carolina, who was the public treasurer of South Carolina at the time these laws were published. An extremely rare work, with Gould and Morgan locating only the Library of Congress, Harvard Law School, and the present copy. Gould & Morgan, South Carolina Imprints 141; Shipton & Mooney 40673; Bristol B1631; ESTC W31062. Bookseller Inventory # 29105
