A digest of the laws of Pennsylvania from the year (1700-1836): (George M. Stroud), 1070p, Phil., M’Carty & Davis, 1837. (A TOC starts on p.7; an
index at p. 991. While at least twelve chronological digests of the laws of Pennsylvania were issued during the years 1714 to 1852, including one by
Benjamin Franklin in 1742, this alphabetically organized subject digest by Read was the first of its type. Read’s work inaugurated a tradition followed at
suitable intervals during 1811-1830 by the 1st to 4th editions of statutory digests of John Purdon. Purdon’s work was continued during 1836-1847 by
6th, 7th & 8th editions of his work edited by George M. Stroud; during 1862-1903 by 9th to 12th editions with supplements edited by Frederick C.
Brightly; during 1905-19115 by a 13th edition with supplements edited by Stewart & Bisel; after which the series was taken over by West Publ. Co. and
continued into the 1970s.)
