The True-Blue Laws of Connecticut and New Haven and the False Blue-Laws Invented By the Rev. Samuel Peters to Which Are Added Specimens of the Laws ... Blue-Laws of England in the Reign of James I

The publishers assure me that a new edition of the Blue Laws is wanted, and at their request I have undertaken to prepare one. I have regarded this as, in some sort, missionary work. There are regions, in which schools and printing-presses have for years been at work, where Peters s History of Connecticut is still read as history. There are hundreds who still believe and thousands who profess to believe that to kiss ones child on the Sabbath-day, to make minced pies, and to play on any instrument of music except the drum, trumpet, and jews -harp, were made criminal offences by the ancient laws of New Haven. There are honest inquirers, not a few, who write, week after week, to the newspapers, for information about these Blue-.L aws, and to ask where authentic copies of them can be found. It has seemed worth while to bring together, in one volume of convenient size, the truth and the falsehood about the early legislation of Connecticut and New Haven colonies. Those who like to read the famous code which Peters gave to the independent dominion of New Haven, may find it here, in unadulterated mendacity. They may find also some genuine curiosities of legislation and jurisprudence, taken from the records of Connecticut and other American colonies ;and, for comparison with these, a few specimens of the laws which were in force in England, in the reign of James the First.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
