Catalogue Note

THE EARLIEST SIGNIFICANT NEW HAMPSHIRE IMPRINT AND THE FIRST COLLECTION OF LAWS TO BE PUBLISHED IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, PRINTED BY NEW HAMPSHIRE'S FIRST PRINTER.

The first compilation of New Hampshire laws was published in 1716, followed by the revision of 1726; however no subsequent publication of the collected laws of the colony were printed until the present edition of 1761. Fowle would publish a new edition a decade following this work.

Scarce, with only one other example at auction in the last half century. Not in Tower.
