About this Item

Six volumes, publication details and pagination provided in the listing below. Bound to style in half calf and marbled boards, leather labels. 19th century bookseller's stamp and ownership inscription to each titlepage, minor foxing, some toning and tanning, occasional very minor ink marginalia. A significant run of six very early Missouri Territory general assemblies, all preceding statehood and very rare. All of these titles were printed by Joseph Charless, editor, printer, and publisher of the Missouri Gazette , and official printer of the Missouri Territory. "His official position as the Missouri territorial printer supplied Charless' press with a considerable amount of work through the years. In addition to small job tasks which he was from time to time called upon to perform, he had also the responsibility annually of publishing the laws enacted during the previous session of the territorial legislature" - Kaser. A complete listing of the imprints is as follows: 1) Acts Passed by the General Assembly, of the Territory of Missouri; in July and August, One Thousand Eight Hundred and Thirteen. St. Louis: Joseph Charless, 1813. 95,[1]pp. American Imprints Inventory (Missouri) 7. 2) Acts Passed by the General Assembly, of the Territory of Missouri; in December and January, One Thousand Eight Hundred and Thirteen and Fourteen.
