This collection contains The 1714 Collected Laws of Massachusetts along with 24 printings of session laws for the legislative sessions from the years 1714-1723 from the press of Boston printer Bartholomew Green. The Law Library possesses one of the world’s most complete collections of the printed session laws of American colonial and early state legislatures. This material is far and away the most important source of information about the legal history of early America. The collection itself is a national treasure. The Law Library lacks all 25 items on offer here. This offer represents an excellent opportunity to fill a major gap in the Law Library’s Early American Statutes Collection.
