Leyes de California Aprobadas en la Sesta Sesion de la Legislatura...en la Ciudad de Sacramento
Sacramento: B. Redding, impressor del Estado, 1855. 8vo. (8 7/8 x 5 1/2 inches). x, 354pp.
Modern cloth, gilt leather labels. Ink library stamps on titlepage.
Scarce Spanish-language edition of the laws of the state of California, passed at the sixth legislative session.
The text was translated from English by Agustin Ainsa, the state translator. Starting in 1854, just a year prior to this publication, California printed its laws in Spanish and in English, no doubt to accommodate the large Spanish-speaking population of the new state. The practice continued every year to 1863, and then irregularly after that.
