About this Item

PARKER, JAMES. Conductor Generalis: or, The Office, Duty and Authority of Justices of the Peace, High-Sheriffs . Constables, Gaolers . To which is added, A Treatise on the Law of Descents in Fee-Simple: By William Blackstone. Woodbridge, in New-Jersey: Printed and sold by James Parker; sold also by John Holt . in New-York, 1764. 8vo. xvi, 592 p. Contemporary sheep, very skillfully rebacked in period style retaining original spine label. Edges of front free endpaper neatly guarded, the usual light foxing inherent in colonial American paper, else a lovely copy. With the contemporary signature of "Wm. Smith" on front flyleaf. First edition of the first legal treatise printed in New Jersey, the first printing of Blackstone in America, and one of the most substantial books both written and printed by a colonial American printer. James Parker was a justice of the peace in New Jersey as well as the colony's first printer, having established his press at Woodbridge in 1754. His legal manual was based upon earlier English works of a similar nature, chiefly Burn, but was considerably altered to suit American needs. Blackstone's treatise on descents was the first work of that author to be printed in America. Parker's Conductor Generalis was a shared edition and exists with three varying title page imprints.
