A Collection of the Public General Statutes, 1837-1869

This bibliography covers the years 1837 to 1869, comprising volumes of the series “A Collection of the Public General Statutes,” published by Eyre and Spottiswoode. The period before is covered by the Butterworths series, and the period after by the more simply titled ‘The Public General Statutes’, again published by Eyre and Spottiswoode.

The earliest volume I have found in this series is from 1803 , although Google has a placeholder for an edition from 1801. I presume that the series began with the union of Britain and Ireland, and the consequent inauguration of the new jurisdiction of the ‘United Kingdom.’ The format at first was of a set of pamphlets sewn together; the volumes listed here are (I think) proper collections with continuous page numbering. The OCR, currently undergoing correction, can be downloaded from Github.
