Code of Virginia  (FIRST EDITION:  1849  Leatherbound) Code of Virginia  (FIRST EDITION:  1849  Leatherbound)


Code of Virginia (FIRST EDITION 1849! Leatherbound). Offered for sale is the first edition of Code of Virginia, published in 1849 (date on title page, and statement on copyright page indicating the book’s information was “entered according to the Act of Congress this twenty-second day of September in the year one thousand eight hundred and forty-nine…”). Book is leatherbound, and measures roughly 9 ½ by 6”, and contains 898 pages, including the complete Constitution of the United States, Declaration of Independence, Constitution of Virginia, and chapters/sections including the following: Militias, Oaths & Bonds, Taxes on Licenses, County Roads & Bridges, the Poor, Fire Companies, Mills, Runaway Slaves, Taverns, Dealing with Slaves, Free Negroes, and MUCH MORE!
Overall condition of book is nice, with expected soiling on covers, with some staining especiall on rear cover. Former owner’s names on preliminary pages: Henry Seibert, August 12, 1852, and James Robinson, May 7, 1850. I’ve pictured the title page to give an indication of the staining to text pages pretty much throughout the entire book. Some minor foxing also apparent to a few pages, but overall not bad at all, especially considering the age of the book.
