Charleston. -1801. 1787 - Sixteen issues: fourteen issues bound in two volumes, plus two separate, stitched. Bound volumes: 77,[2]; 34; [2],7,[1]; [3],4- 59,[2],61-62,[2]; 18; 98,[4]; 60,[4]; 3-81; [2],31; 59,[3],88,[2]; [3],62-132,[2]; [3],104- 172,[2]; 44,[2],46,[2]; 98,[2]pp. Some with irregular pagination.

Contemporary ownership signature on first leaf of most. Mild browning throughout. Some leaves trimmed close with slight loss. First bound volume with moderate to heavy worming in upper margin of first half. First issue lacks titlepage, with manuscript title-slip tipped to upper margin of first leaf. Eighth issue lacks last four pages. Separate issues each in gathered signatures, stitched, in a cloth clamshell case. Moderate dust soiling on edges of first separate issue, contemporary annotations throughout. Both internally clean. Overall very good. An impressive collection of South Carolina laws, covering 1787 to 1800. Any Charleston imprints from the Evans period are rare, and a complete run of this sort in contemporary bindings is extremely rare. The first separate issue with the collection is a complete printing of the December 1792 laws, which effectually replaces the bound variant which lacks the last four pages. The second separate issue, the December 1794 laws, does not appear in the bound volumes. A most important assemblage of imprints.
