Description:When a committee of manufacturers in Stoke, Burslem and Wolstanton put their weight behind a scheme to build a new canal, they published a series of legal extracts 'so that all may know the law' and 'that all just Rights may be enjoyed.'

The extracts, published by Burslem printer John Tregortha, were offered for sale by all of the booksellers in the Potteries, costing sixpence (around £1.59 at today's prices).
