First session (February 10 to April 11, 1772) of the Assembly of 1772-1774. Rind apparently produced four variants of this title; three versions were recorded by Sabin (nos. 100277, 100278, and 100279); two of those and one not recorded were filmed as part of the Early American Imprints series (nos. 12591, 12264, and 42384). The first variant (#100278) was dated 1772 and issued separately; Swem listed that variant (#22650), but it is the Sabin entry that was not among the filmed versions. The second variant (#100277) was dated 1771 and evidently intended to be bound with the acts of the July 1771 assembly (1771.006), then already issued, as it includes a full index for both collections of acts; Evans (#12591) listed that variant. The third variant duplicated the second with the exception that the title page is dated 1772; Evans (#12264) and Clayton-Torrence (#394) both listed that variant. The fourth and final variant (#100279) was bound with the acts of July 1771, however the typography after page 13 differs from the second and third variants; Bristol (#B3501) and Shipton & Mooney (#42384) both listed that variant. This imprint record is for the third variant described, designated here as Variant C.
