1788.004: List of Laws Passed October Session 1787.

Published: 1788

Full Title: A list of laws passed October session 1787

Author: Virginia. General Assembly.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [2 pgs.]; (broadside, printed in two columns, recto and verso).


A list of the titles of the acts passed by the Assembly of October 1787 (October 15, 1787 to January 8, 1788); a second sheet presents the list in reverse order; only known copy in the state archives at the Library of Virginia has extensive marginal annotations in manuscript. As with the prior Assembly, the task of printing this session's laws was split among the three Richmond presses headed by John Dixon, Augustine Davis, and Thomas Nicolson; Dixon was officially the public printer, having become the sole holder of that office on the death of partner John Hunter Holt in June 1787, but his press office was plagued by production delays, hence the division of the public work and the indeterminate provenance here.
