Ruffhead’s Statutes At Large, Magna Charta to 1763 / 1800.

Another of the major eighteenth century collections of legislation, Ruffhead’s Statutes At Large ran for 9 volumes, from Magna Charta to 4 George 3, 1763. The volumes listed here were digitized by the Internet Archive, and are the ones I have OCRed; said texts can be downloaded from Github.

The editor of this series, Owen Ruffhead, died in 1769, and this series was continued in a further five volumes up to 1786. Confusingly, there was then a new edition of his series, edited by one Charles Runnington, that covered the period from Magna Charta to 1786 in ten volumes (including an index), which in turn was followed by another four volumes, continuing both series, and so having two different volume numbers. In this bibliography, I have recorded only Ruffhead’s original series, and those books following on, and not the Runnington books.

Added to this set is an index that was being compiled by Ruffhead at the time of his death, and continued by “another Gentleman”, published in 1772. This is an index to statutes, not any particular collection, and gives regnal codes rather than page numbers.
