A seemingly unrecorded Alabama imprint, being an act pertaining to the founding operations of the Alabama Insurance Company, approved in 1858 but not issued until the year before the Civil War. The work contains a list of the company's founding officers, headed by President W.C. Bibb, and is followed by the company's Act of Incorporation laid out in eleven sections, and concludes with an amendment to the act. The secretarial manuscript certification on the inside rear cover was signed March 1, 1861 by P.H. Brittan, Alabama's Secretary of State. Brittan (1815-1868) was a journalist who also served as Alabama's quartermaster general. Not in Owen, nor listed in OCLC.
