THE STATUTES AT LARGE; BEING A COLLECTION OF ALL THE LAWS OF VIRGINIA, FROM THE FIRST SESSION OF THE LEGISLATURE, IN THE YEAR 1619.

Charlottesville, (VA): Jamestown Foundation of the Commonwealth of Virginia by the University Press of Virginia, 1969. Facsimile edition. 13 vols. 8vo. Brown cloth binding. Very good. Jefferson's involvement with the statues begins with the legislation of 1795 to create them, access to his library greatly improved their completeness. One reads the development of our country in the compilation of these early laws, it is one way we stand out from other nations. From the beginning we were governed by laws recorded in print. The correspondence between Hening and Jefferson is well documented in Sowerby's bibliography of Jefferson's library. Sowerby 1863. Item #61937

Price: $350.00
