New York: Phelps & Fanning, 1851. 359, [1] pp. Bound in original calf [lightly rubbed] with gilt-lettered red morocco spine title. Minor wear, Very Good.

As the title promises, a map of each State is included. The publisher says that the "Maps alone are worth three times what is asked for the whole work." The book expressed the democratic view that standard legal arrangements should be available to the ordinary businessman rather than the exclusive province of alleged experts. For each State, the laws relating to rights of married women are summarized.
