Eastern District of Pennsylvania, to wit.
BE IT REMEMBERED, That on the twenty-ninth day of January, in the forty-ninth year of the Independence of the United States of America, A. D. 1825, WILLIAM RAWLE, Esquire, of the said district, has deposited in this office the title of a book, the right whereof he claims as author in the words following, to wit:
"A View of the Constitution of the United States of America. By William Rawle."
In conformity to the Act of the Congress of the United States, entitled "An act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books to the authors and proprietors of such copies during the times therein mentioned."-And also to the act entitled "An act supplementary to an act entitled 'An act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books to the authors and proprietors of such copies during the times therein mentioned,' and extending the benefits thereof to the arts of designing, engraving, and etching historical and other prints.'
If the following work shall prove useful, as an elementary treatise to the American student, the author will be gratified.
If foreigners be enabled, by the perusal of it, to obtain a general idea of the merits of the Constitution, his satisfaction will be increased.
To the American public in general, its value may chiefly consist in the exhibition of those judicial decisions, which have settled the construction of some points that have been the subjects of controversy.
In this edition, the principles laid down in the first, remain unaltered. The author has seen no reason for any change of them. A small variation in the arrangement, and the correction of some typographical errors, will principally distinguish it from the first.
