1800.068: Memorial of J. & J.D. Westcott for Printing the Laws of Virginia.

Published: 1800

Full Title: To the legislature of Virginia: the memorial of J. & J.D. Westcott ...

Author: John & James D. Westcott [firm].

Place Issued: Alexandria

Issuing Press: John & James D. Westcott

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 23 cm. x 14 cm. (broadside).


Only known copy, in the state archive at the Library of Virginia, lacks printer credit; the text is a petition from the Alexandria printing firm of John & James D. Westcott asking for contract to print the laws of each Assembly session as a way to speed their distribution; that context clearly makes this broadside one of their imprints; it is dated at end in manuscript "Dec. 8, 1800" by a clerk of the House of Delegates, showing date of submission, and so of printing.
