The first compilation of the laws of the state of California. Compiled by S. Garfielde and F.A. Snyder; additionally, Garfielde was the publisher. "Of great historical value and rarity. A limited number of copies were printed by order of the Assembly and this volume is practically the first four Sessions' laws of the State of California" - Norris. "This compilation, which includes copious notes and an index, brings up to date (1853) the Laws passed by the Legislature since 1850. The imprint 'Benicia' is that of the publisher; the book was actually printed in Massachusetts by the Franklin Printing House" - Howell. Not in Cowan. SABIN 10021. NORRIS 1198. HOWELL 50:598.
