Acts of Congress Relative to Land Claims in the Territory of Orleans


[New Orleans]

[Bradford & Anderson]



63 pp. (8vo) 20x12.5 (8x5"), bound pages removed from larger volume.

A printing in parallel English and French of some important post-cession acts, including those confirming validity of original Spanish and French grants, and so forth. Although these acts are frequently found bound with the Acts Passed at the Second Session..., they were also printed and paginated separately. A good example of the printing work of Bradford and Anderson. Bradford arrived in New Orleans in 1804, rising to the post of printer to the Territory in 1805. The patronage was withdrawn three years later because Bradford and Anderson repeatedly attacked Gov. Claiborne in their newspaper, the Orleans Gazette. McMurtrie (Louisiana) 99. Shaw & Shoemaker 11502, 13789. Foote, p.7. Jumonville 144. Thompson 1078.

Lot Amendments

Foxing and toning throughout, darkening to text block, 1" strip missing from bottom of title page; very good.
