Seventy-one volumes of Collections of the Public General Statutes

By various

1810-1882 - London - Twenty volumes printed by George Eyre and Andrew Strahan, and fifty volumes printed by George Eyre and William Spottiswoode, printers to the monarch's most Excellent Majesty

Between 11" by 8.5" and 10.5" by 8.4" , various pagination



Seventy-one volumes of Collections of Public General Statutes, spanning the last ten years of the reign of George III, the reigns of George IV and William IV, and part of the reign of Victoria.

Forty-three volumes bound in half-leather with marbled paper-covered boards.

Twenty-eight volumes bound in quarter-leather with vellum-covered boards.

All with spine labels and gilt lettering.

With Shaw & Sons Law Stationers' label to the front pastedown of several Victoria-era volumes.

With J. Goodwyn's book binders label on the front pastedown of a few volumes.


The bindings are generally tight and firm. There are several very slightly strained inner hinges, which are still good and firm. There is only some mild wear to the extremities, with just some mild bumping and rubbing, with discolouration and marks to the boards. There is significant rubbing to the boards of several volumes, with loss to the paper coverings, and repairs to the paper-covered boards of a few volumes. The paper coverings have been removed from the boards of "16 & 17 Vict.". There is scoring to the front board of "2 & 3 Gull. 4 [William IV]". There is lifting and occasional ink marks to the vellum-covered boards of several volumes, including copperplate signatures to the rear board of "5 Geo. 4". There are closed tears to the lifted vellum on the front board of "6 Geo. 4" and sections of wear to the vellum on the front board of "60 Geo. 3 & 1 Geo. 4". Internally the pages have scattered foxing, prominent to the first and last few pages, significant in several volumes. There is slight browning to the page edges. The title page is missing from "21 & 22 Vict." , there is a repaired closed tear to the half-title of "26 & 27 Vict." , and very occasional closed tears in a couple of volumes. Overall the condition is very good.
