Charleston: Printed by Peter Timothy, 1757. 27pp. Folio. Expertly bound to style in period marbled paper wrappers. Very good. Provenance: Jacob Motte. The personal copy of Jacob Motte, with his signature on the titlepage. Motte was a plantation owner and political figure in colonial South Carolina, and also the public treasurer of the province at the time these laws were published. This copy has extensive marginalia and other notations throughout. These notations, calculations, and holographic notes and corrections are evidently by Motte, since a tax act of this kind would certainly have related to his work in the treasury. Gould & Morgan locate only the copy at the Library of Congress and the present copy of this rare imprint. GOULD & MORGAN, SOUTH CAROLINA IMPRINTS 167. SHIPTON & MOONEY 40940. BRISTOL B1923.
