ORDINANCES AND CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE OF ALABAMA, WITH THE CONSTITUTION OF THE PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT AND OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA
by [Alabama]: [Confederate States of America]
Montgomery: Barrett, Wimbish & Co., steam printers and binders, 1861. 152pp. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards, leather label. Light tanning. Very good. First printing of the Alabama Confederate constitution, and very early printings of the constitution of the provisional government and of the Confederate States of America. The first seventy-two pages of this document print some fifty ordinances passed by the Alabama legislature, mostly relating to war measures. Pages 72- 112 print the new Alabama constitution, passed in January 1861. Pages 113-126 print the provisional constitution, and pages 127-52 the actual Confederate constitution. Since the last ordinance printed in the first part is dated March 20, it would seem this volume was printed immediately thereafter. The constitution was adopted on March 11, 1861, and this printing is probably within two weeks, making it one of the first printings of the official constitution. CRANDALL 1455. SABIN 57514. PARRISH & WILLINGHAM 2610.
