Updates: June and July 2018.

Work on the Statutes Project done in the last two months:

New Volumes: I have scanned, and uploaded to Github, 13 volumes of the series ‘The Law Reports: The Public General Statutes’, each covering one session of parliament held between 1880 and 1898. Note that this is raw, uncorrected OCR; as yet I haven’t run my corrections list over these files. And note that this isn’t a complete, or even consecutive, run; there are still 8 years of the nineteenth century missing.

New Tables: there is now a complete run of tables of legislation spanning 1814 to 1900, hosted on Github.

One new act: for the Relief of Insolvent Debtors, 1760.

New bibliographies, of the English Statutes of the Realm series, and – of a mere three items – for legislation of Antigua and the Leeward Islands. Also, updated are the Jamaican and Indian lists.

And the usual round of automated OCR corrections, and ‘garbage removal’, of random characters and symbols.
