Trumbull, J. Hammond, editor

The true-blue laws of Connecticut and New Haven and the false blue-laws invented by the Rev. Samuel Peters, to which are added specimens of the laws and judicial proceedings of other colonies and some blue-laws of England in the reign of James I.

American Publishing Company, Hartford CT. 1876, vi, 369p., litho'd half-title page (printed a nice decorative medium blue), new edition supervised by the author in 7.7x5 inch electric-blue cloth boards titled gilt with pressed devices and panellings. The casebinding is somewhat edgeworn, fraying at rims of head and tail, spine panel darkened with handling soil. Signatures are starting, no apparent loss of text, paperstock is uniformly toned throughout, front hinge is cracked open at the halftitle giving access to separated backstrip (i.e., should respond to re-glueing and re-settling of signatures, but honed skill required). Endsheets and rear hinge are clean and sound, text is clean. A fair copy susceptible to improvement.
