Albany: Little & Company Law Booksellers, 1850. Thick Octavo. Item #018938
871 pages. Very scarce. A copy is located in the ULCA Law Library but not any on OCLC though a variant is found there in the New York Supreme Court Library. Much is found on the issues of transportation involving bridges, canals, plank roads and railroads. This rare issue lists also for the first time all the county clerks, judges and sheriffs (see the copyright notice on verso of title page). An important look at New York state in 1850 with some details on government found nowhere else. Bound in 3/4 calf over green paper covered boards, red leather label gilt, joints are tender, wear to corners and spine ends, only an occasional spot of foxing, more so to endpapers.
