Green, [New London:, 1778]
7, (1)pp [pp. 495-501, (1)], as issued. Folio, stitched, minor foxing, untrimmed, Very Good to Near Fine. This Session responds to the recommendation of the Continental Congress that States arrange for forfeiture and sale of property belonging to persons "who have heretofore voluntarily gone over to, joined with, and screened themselves under the Protection of the Enemies of the United States of America, or have aided and assisted them in their hostile Measures against said States, and have continued so to do, until the passing of this Act..." The proceeds of sale are to be used for the War effort. The General Assembly also suspends the Act controlling wages and prices, because the Continental Congress has just resolved that, "by a Change of Circumstances in the Commerce of these States, the Regulation of Prices lately recommended by Congress, may be unnecessary;" establishes the Twenty-Sixth Regiment from the Towns of New Hartford, Hartland, Winchester, Barkhempstead and Colebrook; and provides a form for reporting each Town's Grand List.

Green, [New London:, 1785]
12pp [pp. 317-328], folio, disbound, scattered foxing, Very Good. One of three issues, the others from New Haven and Hartford (which Evans calls "the official issue"). The first Act illustrates the difficulties of living under the Articles of Confederation, which-- among other weaknesses-- had failed to grant Congress plenary power over foreign commerce. Connecticut thus passes here an Act "to vest Congress with certain Powers for the Purpose of enabling them to secure to the Citizens of the United States reciprocal Advantages in their Commerce with foreign Nations." Other Acts authorize taxes and duties, amend a tax for repairing the Light-House near the Port of New London, and establish Middlesex County. Evans 18965. Bates 257.

4pp [pp. 351-354], folio, disbound. Light wear, foxing, and crimping. Good+. Demonstrating the weakness of Congress under the Articles of Confederation, the Preamble to an Act notes that Congress "recommended" that the several States repeal Acts "repugnant to the Treaty of Peace, between the United States and Great-Britain; and that each State pass such Act of Repeal..." So the Connecticut General Assembly does so, with a disclaimer that no such Acts exist in Connecticut anyway. This is the "official issue," with other printings in Hartford and New Haven.

8pp [pp. 329-336], folio, disbound, scattered light wear and foxing, Very Good. Establishing Tolland County, rules for civil litigation, taxation. One of three issues, the others from New London and Hartford. Evans calls this one "the official issue"). The first Act illustrates the difficulties of living under the Articles of Confederation, which-- among other weaknesses-- had failed to grant Congress plenary power over foreign commerce. Connecticut passes, at the recommendation of Congress, an Act "to vest Congress with certain Powers for the Purpose of enabling them to secure to the Citizens of the United States reciprocal Advantages in their Commerce with foreign Nations." Thus, in order for Congress to exercise such powers, delegation by the several States was necessary-- but not until ten States so approved. Other Acts authorize taxes and duties, amend a tax for repairing the Light-House near the Port of New London, and establish Middlesex County. FIRST EDITION. Evans 18967. Bates 259.

Green, [New-Haven:, (1789)]
8pp [pp. 371-378], folio, stitched, lightly browned. Very Good to Near Fine. A fine and informative early legislative response to the new Federal Constitution. The General Assembly enacts legislation prescribing election procedures for Senators and Representatives to Congress. Additionally, an Act requires all legislative, executive, and judicial officers of the State to "support the Constitution, agreed upon by the Convention of the United States, and ratified by the Convention of this State." Another suspends all suits brought in Connecticut by any citizen of recalcitrant Rhode Island, which had failed to ratify the Constitution and had passed disabling legislation against citizens of Connecticut. And, in recognition of the Constitution's establishment of a national free-trade zone and Congress's power over foreign commerce, Connecticut repeals its import duties. This is the "official issue" [Evans], with other printings in New London and Hartford. FIRST EDITION. Evans 21748. Bates 288.
