[CONSECUTIVE RUN OF EARLY LOUISIANA LAWS FOR THE FIRST SIX SESSIONS OF THE TERRITORIAL LEGISLATURE, 1806 - 1811]
New Orleans, 1811. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards, leather label. Small ink library stamp to titlepages, embossed blind-stamp to two titlepages, occasional ink ownership signature, a couple of small paper repairs. Overall a very good set. A very desirable run of the session laws issued by the Orleans Territorial Legislature (with the volumes for the first and second session of each of the three legislatures present) between its formation, when it succeded the unelected Legislative Council, to the last session, after which Louisiana achieved statehood and ceased to be a Territory in 1812. All volumes printed in English and French on facing pages. The first imprint is the exceedingly rare 1806 first edition of the first session laws of the first legislature, which was subsequently reprinted the next year. It is almost never seen in the marketplace. In fact, all of these volumes are quite rare both institutionally and in the marketplace. In almost forty years, we've only ever offered three of the six imprints, not including the 1806 edition. The imprints included here are as follows: 1) BY AUTHORITY.
