A Census of Law Books in Colonial Virginia

William Hamilton Bryson, University of Richmond


Each entry in this census is divided into three parts. The first part identifies the book where I have been able to do so. In giving the author's name, I have not followed the bibliographical custom of distinguishing anonymous authors who are now known. The second part of the entry gives a few bibliographical references; the abbreviations used here are explained in the list of works which immediately precedes the census. The third part identifies the copies of the work which were located in colonial Virginia.
