Subjects: LEGAL HISTORY, BIBLIOGRAPHY
This catalogue lists all currently known colonial cases appealed to the Privy Council from the 13 colonies that became the United States. In the century before the creation of the Supreme Court of the United States in 1790, the British Privy Council heard appeals from these colonies, and from the other "American" colonies in Canada and the Caribbean. The heart of the catalogue is a series of 257 reports on the cases appealed to the Privy Council. For each appeal, the report gives: the colony from which the case was appealed; full and short name of the appeal as compiled from the entry in the Acts of the Privy Council, Colonial Series (APC); the names and dates of lower court actions; the names of participants; the subject matter and disposition of the case, if given in the APC; and more. The Useful Lists at the end of the book substitute for an index. Parties to the cases can be found on the lists of case names. Counsel retained in England can be found on the list of counsel. There is a separate list for vessels. There are also preliminary lists of appeals from Canada and from the Caribbean and a brief list of Caribbean printed cases found in three major libraries.
