Full Title: Proposals for publishing by subscription, Reports of cases argued and determined in the Supreme Court of Appeals of Virginia, with select cases, relating chiefly to points of practice, settled by the late High Court of Chancery, and present Superior Court of Chancery for the Richmond District by William W. Hening and William Munford.

Author: Hening, William Waller (1768-1828), and William Munford (1775-1825).

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 34 cm. x 21 cm. (broadside).


Hening & Munford offered their reports in either as pamphlet-form "advance sheets" that covered a set of cases as they were printed. or as completed bound volumes; the reporters eventually issued four volumes of case reports jointly from 1807 to 1811 (Virginia Reports, vols. 11-14), with Munford issuing a further six volumes from 1812 to 1826 (Virginia Reports, vols. 15-20); first volume issued from the Philadelphia press of Smith and Maxwell in 1808 (Swem 8194), after they issued two pamphlet sets from press of Samuel Pleasants (1807.022 & 1808.0xx). Sheet lacks colophon; text is dated "Richmond … July 9th, 1806"; given the authors' ensuing association with Pleasants, this title likely issued from that press; but the other Richmond presses cannot be excluded, so the indeterminacy here.
