More About this Item

Description: Report from the Select Committee on Combination Laws: Particularly as to Act 5 Geo. IV. c. 95. Ordered by the House of Commons to be printed 16 June, 1825. The original foolscap report is nicely bound in blue contemporary boards with a cloth spine, paper title inlay pasted to the front cover, top edge gilt with all other edges dappled. A very nice copy of the report; there are few ocassions of offsetting or contemporary marginal notation (numbering) on otherwise bright, clean pages. The report is bound including appendices and minutes of evidence in a manner visually similar to the original publication. A significant inquiry, the conclusions of which favour arbitration with the new Trade Unions, highlighting a need to punish violence against unions.
