Bibliography of Early American Law

Bicentennial project to compile and prepare for publication an historical, chronological bibliography of American law from earliest colonial times to 1860, with separate indexes by author, title and jurisdiction. ABSTRACT: Bicentennial project to compile and prepare for publication an historical, chronological bibliography of American law from earliest colonial times to 1860, with separate indexes by author, title and jurisdiction. Will include all treatises, tracts, commentaries, encyclopedias and manuals, printed in U.S. or abroad, which relate to American law or legal development; also trials, legal biographies and selected documents of legal significance. Full descriptive entries for all works included, classified into broad subject categories. Short essays will introduce each section, tracing development of law in that field. Originally 6000 works projected for inclusion, however, over 7000 entries have been accumulated since project began.
