Introduction: Sources of Massachusetts Legal History, 1628-1839

 

This comprehensive collection is a rich resource for research into legal, social, economic, military and political history.

Sixteen key titles provide information from this period from sources otherwise difficult to obtain. Beginning with the records of March 1628-1629, the collection contains all of the legislation enacted by the Massachusetts Bay Colony as well as the litigation that passed through its courts, constituting the first comprehensive body of law to be developed in North America.

Covering the years 1628-1839, Sources of Massachusetts Legal History presents those laws that established precedents for all of the New England colonies as well as many of the western states and territories. Its wealth of original documents and vital source material make this collection a valuable addition to law, business and academic libraries.
