[Philadelphia]: John Dunlap, [1782]. 46pp.

Modern buckram, gilt leather labels. Minor edge wear. Faint ink library stamp, ink ownership inscription, small repair, and small area of loss to top edge of titlepage (not affecting text), some dampstaining, first half of the page numbers re-numbered by hand in ink, bottom corner of one leaf torn (not affecting text).

A scarce Revolutionary imprint recording the acts passed in the January/February session of the South Carolina General Assembly in 1782.

This is apparently John Dunlap's only printing of a South Carolina legal work. A likely reason for Dunlap's involvement with the printing involves the British occupation of Charleston, which lasted from the Spring of 1780 until December 1782. Printing by the revolutionaries in British-occupied Charleston, especially of official American legislative publications, would surely have been tough to accomplish. ESTC records only one institutional copy, at the John Carter Brown Library, and OCLC only records the copy at the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris.

ESTC W31388; Evans 17725; Hildeburn 4695; OCLC 460978671; Sabin 87633.
