Government Imprint, “Acts Passed at the Second Session of the Seventh Congress of the United States,”, 1803. Scarce printing of the acts of Congress during Thomas Jefferson's presidency, including printings of important American treaties. The Seventh Congress was the first during which Thomas Jefferson was President. Printed here are the acts admitting the state of Ohio, with alterations of laws governing the Northwest and Southwest Territories, as well as other session laws. Importantly, this volume contains a series of important treaties. The "Convention Between the French Republic and the United States of America" (pp. i-xxiii) with both French and English texts, ratified in 1801, settled all the commercial and military disputes that had brought the two countries to the brink of war in the 1790s, and paved the way for the Louisiana Purchase. Loosely string bound, 120pp., plus 86pp., index. VG
