CD: Abridgement and Collection of the Acts of Assembly of the Province of Maryland

Mr. Bisset, as an attorney, believed that the inhabitants of the Province of Maryland should be familiar with the laws regulating their conduct, securing their liberties and properties and settling their social and mutual obligations and ties with one another. Since laws change over time, being repealed or amended, and new laws are passed, he felt that this volume would remedy any "uncertainty of what was and what was not Law…" since the last collection published in 1726. Mr. Bisset presents every "material Act at present in force, with all the subsequent Acts relating to any original Act immediately following…" and notes in the margin the year when enacted. He includes a full index, a table of the Acts contained in the collection and a table of all the Acts not inserted in this collection "so that upon comparing of both tables, any person will directly see that no material Law is omitted, nor any expired or repealed Act inserted."
