A Bill to Establish an Uniform System of Bankruptcy Throughout the.
1827 - Early Federal Bankruptcy Bill [Broadside]. [United States Congress]. [House of Representatives]. H.R. 332: A Bill to Establish an Uniform System of Bankruptcy Throughout the United States. [Washington, D.C.: January 2, 1827]. 81 pp. Folio (12" x 7-1/2"). Disbound stab-stitched pamphlet. Binding secure, light browning throughout. $275. * This bill was presented to the 19th Congress, 2d Session but never enacted into law. The first Federal bankruptcy act enacted in February 1800, was aimed to encourage economic risk and supersede the patchwork of debtor laws in force in the different states. Never a popular law, it was routinely attacked as a shield for the financially irresponsible and finally repealed in November 1803. The United States would not have another national bankruptcy law until 1841. Three notable bills were proposed unsuccessfully during those intervening years; one in 1815, one in 1820 and this one. All are interesting for their conception of bankruptcy and awareness of the resistance Congress had to reforms of any kind. No copies located on OCLC.
