New Museum Acquisition: Thomas Davies, The Laws Relating to Bankrupts..., London, 1744

The Muir Hunter Museum of Bankruptcy has aquired another interesting item. The collection now contains Mr Thomas Davies' "The laws relating to bankrupts, brought home to the present time : with several special cases, modern determinations, and precedents relating thereto, and directions for creditors and debtors : also a list of the fees in bankruptcy, and the method of proceeding therein", printed in London by Henry Lintot MDCCXLIV (1744).

The book measures 8.5 x 13". The leather binding is in good condition with only slight wear and rubbing. Internally the text is very good, with only slight worming to the upper right corner of the last several leaves. There are two previous owner signatures, an undated Samual Sedgwick and what appears to be a 'Dan Jones', Lincoln's Inn, dated November 20th 1765.  This is a rare work and scholars are welcome to use by appointment.
