Regis Magnae Britanniae, Franciae, & Hiberniae, tricesimo. At a General Assembly begun and holden at Charles-Town, on Tuesday the twelfth day of November, in the twenty-eighth year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord George the Second ... in the year of our Lord 1754. And from thence continued by divers prorogations and adjournments, to the 21st day of May 1757. Charles-Town [Charleston]: Peter Timothy, 1757; Acts of the General Assembly of South-Carolina, passed the 7th of April, 1759. Charles-Town [Charleston]: Peter Timothy, 1759. Seven works bound in five volumes, 20th century cloth with leather spine labels. Full collations etc. available upon request. Bar Association stamps on titles, the last leaf of one work somewhat defective, some toning to paper but most clean, all the copies of Jacob Motte with his name on the title, and (in a few cases) his annotations. Motte, the public treasurer of South Carolina when these laws were published, apparently misappropriated over 90,000 pounds which was eventually repaid by 1759. All of these works appear to be of the utmost rarity. ESTC notes the Library of Congress copies only, and in one case the work we have is considerably more extensive than that recorded and probably represents an unrecorded issue. The official printer of South Carolina at this time, Peter Timothy, was the son of the proto-printer of the state, Lewis Timothy, and (as recorded by an article by Douglas C. McMurtrie) was a regular correspondent with Benjamin Franklin (who had helped his father establish the press). These are Shipton & Mooney 40480, 40441, 40570, 40673, 40674 (but with 20 pp., not 8), 40940 and 41081. C The New York City Bar Association
