The Advocates Library has a large collection of UK legislation, from Scottish Acts in Regiam Majestatem (published in 1597) and Acts of King Henry VIII (published in 1551) to the Acts of the Scottish Parliament / Public, General Acts available today. We also have Local, personal and private acts from 1798-. We hold a collection of UK Statutory Instruments not reprinted in publishers bound volumes and copies of Draft Statutory Instruments.
In addition to this UK Official Publications material we also have legislation from a large number of foreign jurisdictions during colonial periods, as well as some of more recent dates.
