Book Description Silas Andrus, 1822. Hardcover. Book Condition: Used: Good. 16mo, original full sheep leather binding. Front spine hinge cracked. 119 pages. Frontispiece of the Constable siezing a Tobacco taker. "The term 'Blue Laws' describes harsh, puritanical laws that regulate public morality. Such laws supposedly existed in colonial America, making it illegal to do such things as kiss a child or shave on Sunday. But in fact, such laws probably never formally existed. The claim that they did was a hoax perpetrated by a writer in the late eighteenth century, the Reverend Samuel Peters. Peters's history caused a sensation in England, where readers felt that his account of these bizarre blue laws confirmed their view that Americans were a backwards, overly fanatical lot. But New Englanders who read the book were outraged, and rightly so. Because Peters had simply made up these blue laws." - Museum of Hoaxes. "The Code of 1650, being a compilation of the earliest laws and orders of the General Court of Connecticut : also, the constitution, or civil compact, entered into and adopted by the towns of Windsor, Hartford, and Wethersfield in 1638-9 ; to which is added some extracts from the laws and judicial proceedings of New-Haven colony, commonly called Blue laws.".
