LAWS AND ACTS OF THE UNITED STATES, PRINTED BY AUTHORITY [with] ACTS PASSED AT THE FIRST SESSION OF THE FOURTEENTH CONGRESS
Philadelphia: various publishers, 1796-1807, 1819. 13 volumes. First authorized editions; from the library of England's Foreign Office. 8vo, contemporary tan calf, rebacked at an early date, with red morocco title pieces and session labels placed between gilt lined panels of spine. Internally quite crisp and nice, though the bindings are with some chipping and wear due to age. RARE. WITH A VERY EARLY PRINTING OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. Early collections of American political and diplomatic acts are especially scarce. Beginning with an early printing of the Constitution and the first acts of the first Congress of the United States, this very important and rare set of books includes the original Treaties and Laws from 1778 and "Acts Passed at the First Session of the First Congress”. Subsequent Acts of Congress and the Presidents including the mapping of the territories the provision for the Lewis and Clark expedition, the authorizations for purchases of land that would eventually make up the country, the provisions for war and the foreign treaties (including Indian treaties) are also included. Subsequent volumes carry the printing through to 1819. Each volume is stamped FOREIGN OFFICE on the upper cover and title page.
