Denver & Central City, 1861. Twelve works bound in nine volumes. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Wear to bindings. Ink library stamp to each titlepage, embossed blindstamp to all but one titlepage, some titlepages with ink manuscript ownership notations, scattered foxing, some tanning. A good set. A rare complete set of Colorado territorial laws, published between 1861 and 1876. The set comprises the session laws for the eleven sessions of the legislative assembly of the Colorado territory, plus the first edition of the 1876 CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE OF COLORADO, published just before Colorado officially became the thirty-eighth state in August 1876. Ten of the twelve works are titled GENERAL LAWS...OF THE TERRITORY OF COLORADO. The other two works are PRIVATE ACTS, JOINT RESOLUTIONS AND MEMORIALS PASSED AT THE 7TH SESSION OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF COLORADO TERRITORY and the aforementioned 1876 CONSTITUTION, which are bound together. Together, these represent all of the session laws for the Colorado territory plus the Constitution of the newly-formed state. Interestingly, the first volume includes the Organic Act, organizing the territory, which laid out an area identical to that of the present-day state of Colorado. It also enumerates laws governing Indians, the militia, cattlemen, the education system, and much more. This is easily the most extensive run of Colorado territorial laws we've encountered in almost forty years in business. McMURTRIE (COLORADO) 26, 33, 45, 54, 68, 80, 96, 116, 149, 202, 273, 289.
