xxxvii,107,,,,-213pp. Half calf and marbled boards. Small library stamps to first page of Constitution and each titlepage, faint marginal dampstain to last third of text. Overall, a very good copy of a rare work. This is the record of the first session of the Territory of Minnesota legislature, and among the earliest of Minnesota imprints. Printing began in Minnesota in the summer of 1849, and this volume, covering the acts of the first legislature, was issued early in 1850. The printers Goodhue and M'Lean were not in partnership, but each printed a part of the work, hence the idiosyncrasies of layout and pagination. The preliminaries are composed of the Constitution and AN ORDINANCE FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF THE TERRITORY OF THE UNITED STATES NORTHWEST OF THE RIVER OHIO. A rare title, with only ten copies in OCLC. AII (MINNESOTA) 17.
