1801.043: Proposals for Printing the Acts of Assembly now in force.

Published: 1801

Full Title: Proposals for printing by subscription, A collection of all such acts of the General Assembly of Virginia of a public and permanent nature as are now in force, with Marginal Notes and Index complete, to which will be affixed The Declaration of Rights and Constitution or Form of Government; as also The Constitution of the United States, and Acts of Congress for the Government of the District of Columbia. The whole compiled by Joseph Caldwell, attorney.

Author: Caldwell Joseph (b. 1760).

Place Issued: Winchester

Issuing Press: George Trisler

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 25 cm. x 17 cm. (broadside).


Text details conditions for subscribing for a set of "two octavo volumes." and concludes with notation that "Subscription papers will be left with the clerks of the different county and corporation courts throughout the state. Winchester, June 17, 1801." Proposed work never issued, probably as a result of a competing collection of Virginia laws proposed by Richmond printers Samuel Pleasants and Henry Pace that fall, a project which had a broader appeal and the patronage of the Assembly itself (see 1801.043). Sheet lacks colophon; Caldwell was one of Winchester's leading Republican figures, as well as father of printers James and Joseph F. Caldwell; so it is most likely that this subscription form issued from the Republican press of George Trisler, where those sons began their training.
