A reprint of the first collection of Canadian statutes as it appeared in 1795, to which has been added the first printings of the provincial statutes for 1797 to 1800. The first 186 pages of the first volume of statutes appear here as original sheets remaindered from the first edition. According to Tremaine, these sheets were occasionally offered as "complementary sections" of the 1830 reissue. In the second volume, statute titles appear only for those statutes no longer in force. The series ceased publication in 1831. In all, a useful resource for early Canadian laws. TPL 644. GAGNON 2:2046. SABIN 10497. TREMAINE 943, 1053.
