About This Item

Richmond: Aug. Davis, 1799. Full Leather. Very Good binding. Octavo. [12], 468, xxiv (appendix I), 32 (appendix II), 15 (index), [1 (blank)] pp. Second edition. Bound in contemporary sheep with morocco title label on the spine. General rubbing to the binding; corners softened and worn; contemporary owner name (A. Claiborne) on the front free endpaper; contents toned and foxed; binding is solid. But a fairly nice copy, all things considered, of this handbook for the justices of the peace. Hening was an important legal historian and certainly most recognized for his "The Statutes at Large; Being a Collection of All the Laws of Virginia, from the First Session of the Legislature in the Year 1619," the first codification of Virginia law. American National Biography; Evans 35611; Haynes 8225.
