EXAMINATION OF THE VALIDITY OF THE PRETENDED CHARTERS OF THE CITY OF NEW-YORK, IN A REVIEW OF THE DECISION OF THE SUPERIOR COURT, IN THE CASE OF GABRIEL FURMAN, EX. AND OTHERS, AGAINST THE MAYOR, ALDERMEN AND COMMONALTY OF THE CITY OF NEW-YORK. BY B.S.

Pudney & Russell, New York: 1852 Dbd, 27pp. Title page browned, else Very Good. A scarce attack on judicial decisions upholding City actions that had adversely affected landowners abutting New York City navigable waters. The unknown author argues that courts have misread the extent of the Common Council's authority; its actions, he demonstrates, were "not within the legal powers of that body." A close examination of the various Charters, from which the City's powers derive, ensues, commencing with colonial days. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 74603. 164 NUC 0217694 [4]. Not in Harv. Law Cat., Eberstadt, Decker.
