New Jersey Revised Statutes of 1846

About This Book

The title page reads: "Statutes of the State of New Jersey, revised and published under the authority of the Legislature. Trenton: printed by Phillips & Boswell. 1847." The work is sometimes called the "Revision of 1845" because it was authorized in 1845, and sometimes the "Revision of 1847" because of the publication date, but we call it the "Revision of 1846" or the "Revised Statutes of 1846" because the revision acts that it includes were actually passed by the Legislature in April of 1846.
