The Trapp Collection

On the 112th anniversary of the birth of Laconia, New Hampshire, Judge Harry Edwin Trapp, the Law Library at Franklin Pierce Law Center celebrated the receipt of a collection of his old and rare law books. Seventeen old English law books from the 17th and 18th centuries form this collection. Most of the books are "nominative" or named reports published in England between 1659 and 1799.
