John Haywood (1762-1826) was a North Carolina attorney general and historian. Later in life he settled in Tennessee, and is best known for his histories of that state. Here, however, he documents North Carolina law cases that took place from 1789 to 1806. This set is made up from an 1829 second edition of the first volume, originally published in Halifax, NC in 1799 (Evans 35607), and the first edition of the second volume printed in Raleigh in 1806. Allen reports that he, "never determined why this separate Volume One was reprinted in Tennessee in 1829, but the book is a scarce and early Fayetteville, Tennessee imprint." SHAW & SHOEMAKER 11309.
