Philadelphia W[illiam] Bradford [1758] Folio (7-1/4" x 11-1/2") bound in contemporary calf with a decorative blindstamped border, recently rebacked with a new gilt-lettered and decorated spine, preserving original paste-downs and free endpapers; (4), 763 pages. Title within rule border, decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces. An important compilation of the fundamental New Jersey charters and session laws of the proprietary period (1664 to 1702), up to Lord Cornbury's commission and instructions as Royal Governor, when New Jersey became a crown colony under Queen Anne. Publication was ordered by the New Jersey Assembly in 1752, but two years were required to collect the documents to be included, while the typesetting and printing took Bradford an additional three. By the date of publication, some 170 copies had been subscribed. This title was the largest volume issued from Bradford's press and one of the largest from any eighteenth-century American press. Evans 8205; Sabin 39527. Early owner name on the title page and early twentieth century names on the front pastedown. Title page with a few repaired tears; two adjoining leaves of text lacking and supplied with facsimiles. Very Good and scarce
