ACTS OF ASSEMBLY, PASSED IN THE PROVINCE OF NEW-YORK, FROM 1691, TO 1718
London: John Baskett, 1719. Expertly bound to style in period calf and marbled boards, spine gilt with raised bands, red morocco label. Very good. An important compilation of early English colonial laws of New York, published by the royal printer John Baskett. As with other Baskett editions of colonial laws, this is an elegantly printed volume, and is quite scarce having been published largely for official use. The work comprises all the acts of the New York Assembly from 1691 through 1718, including many laws concerning slaves within the colony. The full text of the laws in force is provided, with the titles only of those laws which had expired or had been repealed. "Probably copied from Bradford's edition [of the same year]...and, according to Trott, was printed by order of the Lords Commissioners of Trade and Plantations" - Rich. SABIN 53467. ESTC T136533. RICH 1:26.
