[An Extensive Collection of Maryland Session Laws Passed during the American Revolution, 1777 - 1783]
Annapolis: Frederick Green, 1783. Two volumes. Small folio. (11 5/8 x 7 1/4 inches). Sixteen separate imprints, each with separate titlepage, unpaginated. Uniform 19th-century pebbled morocco, gilt. Dampstain to top margin and some tanning in volume two, a few instances of minor contemporary marginalia, some overall toning and light foxing. Critical Maryland Laws from the Revolution A nearly continuous run of sixteen early Maryland state session laws, all adopted in the thick of the American Revolution. There is much in these laws pertaining to the Revolution, including several acts for recruitment of soldiers, and some involving troop movements, quartering of soldiers, the regulation of the militia, the raising of supplies, relief for wounded soldiers, the regulation of officer's salaries, the creation of a state infantry company, relief for "those who have and may suffer by the British army," and more. The later sessions are increasingly concerned with the war effort: raising arms and other supplies, punishing spies, creating battalions of militia, providing for the defense of Baltimore, establishing methods for handling property confiscated from the British army, and providing relief for those whose property was confiscated or destroyed by the British army. A 1782 act established what is now known as Washington College in Chestertown. Also, a 1783 law prohibited, at least for a time, the importation of slaves into the state. Several titlepages bear the signature of Robert Goldsborough, a Maryland delegate to the Continental Congress. The only imprint lacking here to make it a full run is the session laws for this period is that for Oct. 17, 1780 (Evans 17205).The list of separate imprints included here is as follows:1) Laws of Maryland, Made and Passed at a Session of Assembly...on Wednesday the Fifth of February, in the Year of Our Lord One Thousand Seven Hundred and Seventy-Seven.
