[Extensive Run of Session Laws from Kentucky]
Frankfort, 1816. Nineteen volumes. First eleven volumes in early 20th-century three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, spines gilt; later eight bound to match in similar style. Library ink stamp on each titlepage, occasionally also an embossed stamp or second ink stamp, contemporary ownership inscription. Second volume trimmed closely, affecting some marginal notes; two leaves repaired with tape; marginal loss to one leaf; lightly dampstained. Volume five lacking several leaves, noted below. Seventh volume lightly dampstained. Tenth volume with light dampstaining to last few leaves. Volume fourteen with slight loss to center of titlepage, light dampstaining along inner margin. Volume nineteen, titlepage trimmed close at the top affecting the word "Acts"; lacking two leaves, noted below. Overall, a very good run of quite rare imprints. An extraordinary run of the earliest laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. These volumes of session laws are all rare products of the early Kentucky presses. The first volume in the run contains an apparently unrecorded appendix to amend the penal laws, with much interesting material on prison practices, as well as sentencing guidelines. The primary acts for that session were, according to one of the resolutions, issued in 800 copies; they contain interesting divorce proceedings against various absent husbands, among much else.All these acts are rare in the marketplace and most are known in only a few institutional copies. Kentucky gained statehood in 1792, so these are among the earliest imprints in the state and, indeed, in the region.They are as follows:1) Acts of a Local, or Private Nature, Passed at the Second Session of the Sixth General Assembly for the Commonwealth of Kentucky....
