A scarce, complete run of the Session Laws of Pennsylvania, from the late Revolutionary period through April 1790. The four folio volumes in which they appear are bound uniformly in later cloth, with gilt-lettered morocco spine labels. Occasional rubberstamps, widely scattered foxing. Very Good. The Laws treat the exciting topics of Revolution and post-Revolution; relations with the federal Congress, other States, Indians; and a variety of other subjects under the Articles of Confederation and the early Constitution.
