An extensive run of Utah laws.

A remarkable and nearly complete run of the early session laws of the Utah Territory, encompassing a number of early Salt Lake City imprints. The volume for the first session is, of course, the first collection of Utah Territory laws. It includes interesting statutes related to ranching, for example concerning brand books and enclosures. The acts of the fourth session did not appear separately, but are found only in the 1855 Acts, published in Great Salt Lake City by Joseph Cain, 1855, and present in this run. These volumes contain a wealth of information on Brigham Young and other Mormon pioneers, the incorporation of cities and counties, the building of roads, the establishment of industry, and all aspects of Utah life of the period. The laws encompass the founding of the territory, the Mormon War, the Civil War period, and the coming of the transcontinental railroad in 1869.
