laws for Virginia’s colonial period are covered in V. 1-8. Valuable additions to V. 1 include the first constitution of the State of Virginia {pp.
50-56} and a section entitled “Ancient Charters relating to the first settlement of Virginia {pp. 57-118}. V. 1-4 of the set scanned by LLMC were reprinted
in 1823 and are considered “Second Edition” owing to the fact that in Hening’s original publication V. 1-4 were published under a subscription scheme
limited to 350 copies. However, the only editorial changes between the two editions are a minor factual correction in V. 1 {explained in the Preface
at the bottom of V.1, p. xxiii} and the addition of some valuable historical documents at pp. 545-565 of V. 4.)
