Descripción

4to. [4], xii, [1], 14-522, [1 errata], [1 blank] pp. [bound with, as issued] AN APPENDIX, TO A DIGEST OF THE LAWS OF MARYLAND. Baltimore: Printed for Thomas Herty, by Warner & Hanna. 1799. 55, [1 blank] pp. Blank upper margin of title page of the first item has been restored; lower margin of one leaf repaired [two letters lost]. The text is lightly toned with scattered light foxing, and occasional learned marginalia. Binding is original calf, skilfully rebacked [including inner portion of front cover] with original gilt-lettered but faded morocco spine label laid down. Good+. Herty dedicates the book "To Luther Martin, Esq. Attorney General of the State of Maryland," who had refused to endorse the U.S. Constitution because he feared its centralizing tendencies. The last page of the Digest is a prospectus for Herty's Digest of the Laws of the United States. Herty provides, with a useful Index, a Digest of the Acts of the Assembly, observing that these are "most requisite for the inhabitants to become acquainted with, being solely enacted and calculated for regulating their conduct, securing their religious, political and civil liberties, real and personal property, and settling their mutual obligations and ties one with another." He lists those who defrayed his publication expenses, including the Maryland legislature, which contributed $200, Luther Martin [who threw in $10], and others who gave $10 each. FIRST EDITION.
