Date of publication: 01 May 1861
Description/subject: Table of contents followed by all 511 articles, in one big document... (INDIA ACT XLV. 1860) (1st May. 1861) The pdf version is based on the BLC version. A spell-check was run on the BLC version and checked against a hard-copy version of the "Myanmar Code". The hard-copy version was taken as authoritative and the text amended accordingly. Some obvious mistakes exist in the hard-copy original. These are left as-is, followed by "[sic. "xxxx" is presumably intended"]". The BLC version does not contain all the footnotes which exist in the hard-copy version. These will be added in a Corr.2
