Confederate Imprints, “PROVISIONAL AND PERMANENT CONSTITUTIONS OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES. [with:] ACTS AND RESOLUTIONS OF THE FIRST SESSION OF THE PROVISIONAL CONGRESS OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES, HELD AT MONTGOMERY, ALA. [with:] ACTS AND RESOLUTIONS OF THE SECOND SESSION OF THE PROVISIONAL CONGRESS OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES, HELD AT MONTGOMERY, ALA. [with:] ACTS AND RESOLUTIONS OF THE THIRD SESSION OF THE PROVISIONAL CONGRESS OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES, HELD AT MONTGOMERY, ALA.”, Richmond: Tyler, Wise, Allegre and Smith, 1861. The first two titles continuously paginated, 372pp., Modern three-quarter morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Scattered foxing and toning. VG. An important collection of early Confederate laws, bringing together early printings of the provisional and permanent Confederate constitutions, as well as the acts and laws of the first three sessions of the Confederate Provisional Congress, all of which convened in 1861. Within the proceedings of the first three sessions of the Provisional Congress will be found a great number of acts that established the structure of the government of the Confederate States of America, giving us an excellent understanding of how the Confederacy functioned as a governmental entity. Among the acts are those establishing the Department of War, the Army and Navy, the Post Office, courts, Justice Department, providing for an Executive Mansion, and establishing free navigation of the Mississippi River. Other acts formally bring states (such as Texas) into the Confederacy, address issues of tariffs, counterfeiting, the treatment of prisoners of war, and the powers of the president, set up an official printing office, and much more. P&W21.
