THE large increase of our stock compels us to issue a new
edition of our Catalogue, and we avail ourselves of the occasion
to state generally our facilities for supplying the demands of
the trade and members of the bar. We believe we can state
with entire accuracy that we have on hand the largest and
most complete assOl:tment of Law Books ever offered for sale'
in the United States. In the Statutory Law and Reports of
the various States of the Union, our collection is complete.
We are proprietors of the Reports of the State of New York,
which are required to complete every Law Library, and we
invite attention especially to that department of our Catalogue.
The English Statutes aud Reports are received regularly as
they are published. We are now re-publishing the English
Chancery Reports without abridgment or alteration in a style
superior to the original, and at a very moderate cost.
Our collection of Text Books and Digests, both American
and English, will be found perfect.
The increasing disposition to study the Civil Law has in-
duced us to turn our attention also in that direction, and we
are prepared to execute any order for Foreign or Continental
Law Books with great promptness.
An experience of forty years in the publication and sale of
Law Books, has enabled us to become well acquainted with
the wants of the younger members of the bar, who cannot
afford more than a small collection ofpractical works. And we
will be happy to make such suggestions as may be desired on
the subject.

In his prefatory remarks, Mr Wdprm:tn :
"The great accumulation of rpports, creating a nccf,Ssity'!..or
some more brief and methodical of decisions which
.sha.ll be easy of reference, and at the sarnR. tiple convey the neces.
sary information: bas led to tbe compiling of digests, designed. as
they are: to facilitate investigation by a. clear. simple, and at the
same time arrangement of each liuhjt:!ct.
The value of this is enhanced by the fact of its being & :la-
tional wOJ"t-confi,ucd to no One State or sectioD: but comprt>bend-
, ing ellch and eTOry State, lind the entire country llJl a whole. CO!!-

talning all the reported decisions in equity of the United State.
Courts, and of the courts of the several States of the Union, from
the caTtiest period to thp. present time. it embodies almost every
known principle of American law, and hence becomes a complete
encyclopoodia of American legal science. .
It was originally placed in the hands of the late John A. Dunlap,
Efq., well known to the profession for his learning and accuracy as
a. law writer. He had, however, scarcely entered upon the task,
when he was prostratad by thE:! disease which, after a languishing
sickness of eighteen months
terminated fa.tally. Shortly before
his decease, [ was called in to prosecute the work so long unavoid1-
bly neglected. Though his sand, of life were nearly spent, and the
ohjects of sense fast fading from his sight, the vigor of a highly
disciplined mind continued unimpaired to the last; and I have to
acknowledge from him much valuable counsel, and important
hints and suggestions, which cheered, directed and aid.ed my sub·
sequent labors.
Though ostensibly tbe third edition of the American Chancery
Digest, this is SUbstantially a new work,-not only the plan and ar·
being new, but a of the ma.terials also.
In the arrangement, I avoided. &8 much as possible, the mul-
tiplication of divisions, and sub-divisions. which only tend to con-
fuse and embarrass, and haTe aimed q,t an order and classification
nt once simple and natural. J have examined, with few exceptions,
all the reports of -the different States. To enS".lre entire correct-
ness, J have not ventured always to rely upon the reporter's notE's
8.t the hea.d of the case, but, in every instance, carefully read
the decision. and then taken tho:! spirit of it, with proper regard to
brevitY,and clearnel:5s of statement, as well as to accuracy. /With
almost every decision, I have also given the a.uthorities tlfat sup·
port it, so that the references to standard works are numeTOUS and
valuable Explanatory notes are another feature of tho lVork. At
the end of each volume is a very copious index, which it hoped
will prove a. valua.ble a.cquisition. "" It has been prepar.ed wIth care,
and with a view to utility. The intrQduction first;an
historical skf'tcb of the Court of Cll,ancery j secqndly, the

Messrs. BANKS, GOULD & Co. :
Gentlemen,- I am much obliged·to you for calling my attention
to your recent edition of the American Chancery Digest, prepared
by Mr. -
It is an admirable work. and cannot fail to give entire satisfac-
tion to the profession. .
Besides being a complete digest of aU the American decisions in
equity, well arranged, and a. reference to every head very much
facilitated by the ample and copious index at the end of e.ach vo·
lume i it is enriched with references to English Chancf'ry decisions
on the same points. and with a valuable history of the COUl"t of
Chancery and account of the equity cuurts and jurisdictiGD of the
several states a.nd the United Statf's. This history and
tic.n must have cost the energetic au-thor a great deal of .
la.bor i and the whole work is a monument of well·direct.ed.-.and.-_-
persevering industry. ----

The title-page of this wor.k is sufficient to show that it would
make a very desirable addition to every lawyer's library. It
pri&ies, in the smallest practical the fruits of long years of
tedious The compH\ r bas reaped a rare and extensive field,
and has gathered up for us wisdom that could heretofore be
cd only after difficult and costly research. A copy of the book hali
been in our possession but a few weeks. but we ha.v€' a.lready
ceived valua.ble aid from it, which could not have been -furni8hed
us from any other source within our reach. It has been aptly
Etyled a compll'te Encyclopredia. of American Legal Science. There
is scarcely a principle of American Jaw that i8 Dot embodied in the
decisions of our equity courts; and the essence of all th"se adju.

entire correctness, he has Dot ventured always to rely upon the" re.
porter:s notes at the head of the case, but ba.'l, :n every
carefUlly read the decisioD, and then taken the spirit of it. with
proper regard to brevity and clearness of statement, as well as,to
A.s concerns the accuracy and faithfulness with which this work
is eX"cuted, the professional reputation of Mr. Waterman wiJl
prove.. to most of the professioD, a better guaranty than- aught that
we might say. Having, however. examined it thoroughly in these
res:pects, we will that we have beeJ;l able to no errors
ihat are not too trivial to be noticed here. '.
The arrang.ement of the work is admirable. On the one band,
too. minute and fanciful divisions and sUbdivisions. which tend only
to confusion, and which injure so many of our books of rpference,
have been avoided j while on the other hand, an easy and
classifica.tion has been adopted, which may well be taken as a. mO-
dd by others engaged in preparing similar compilations . . -
TheSE" volumes are three in number. and are published in Banks,
Gould &. CO.'s best style. Indeed (hree more neat and.-...SJlbs.tantial
law volames have heen issued in a. long time.
In a. notice of this:! work the introd'\lctioo is worthy of a remark.
It is a concise, though lucid. eSSHy, on the necessity, the nature,
and tho kl.tory of tho Court of Chancery; tog.ther with tM
_more local rell:ulations by which it is governed in the several states.
Throughout, it is full of inforJ;llation Otod intere&t-while reading
it one cannot fail to mark the triumph of equitable principles over
rules. Truly wa.s it said by one of the brightest orna·
ments of our profession. the docttint's of the Court of Equity
are the most unstained prodactions of the morality and intellect of
man, directed to the regulation of bis civil duties, that the world
ha.s yet known. No code of jurisprUdence, flom the crude instiiu.

knowledge, exhibits & system of such pure morality, so consistent
with the dictates of a sound unbiased rt:ason (-so founded upon the

Messrs. BANKS, GOULD & Co. : . ""
Gentlemen,-Mr. Barbour kindly sent to me, some time ago, his
Treatise on the Practice of tbe Court of Chancery, with an Appen.
wx of valuable precedents. .
I h&ve examiaed it with all the interest one naturally feels in a
8ubject-which hal' eoe",pied so man) j eall3 of his time aod atten-
tion, and I take' great pleasure ill saying that' Is the must clea.r;full,
8JlU ChaDcery Fraetice which
wehave in this country.
It embnces all that is excellent in the late Treatise of Mr. Dan.
iel on the English Practice, as well as the valuable parts of the 01ll--
er pu1)1icatiollB of Harrison, Maddock, NewllUld and Grant.

To the American solicitor it IS of course. indispeIfBli'6le, and it EU.
persedes to a g.'eat elj.e.llUbe En)l;Hsh boob.• For to say notbing
of its contaIning all the pertinent Bnglish decisions since Daniel
w&8-published, it contains the American Practioe. as. modified by
our laws. Rnd established by our conrts and adjudications. And
althougP. the Eqglislt. has in its recent Orders) drawn
largely from Chancellor Walworth's Rules of the New York Court
of Chancery, yet its orders-anaits practice a'J'eJn many respects 80
di.fferent from our own, that a considera.ble portiGll---.9JJheir '6OOks
of Pra.ctice is useless to us. Bp.sides, in Mr. Barbour's wQrk there
are many heads of the most ordiuR.ry and frequent jurisdiction (If

unknown, or of limited use and di.fferent in mode in the English
Practice. Such Rore Judgment Creditor'" Sale of Mortgage

and the like.
. In this Sl;ate, therefore, Bud in most of the states south and west
of us, waere the law and practice ot Equity are in a grea t degree
identical with ours. I have no doubt that Mr. Barbour's Practice
will be the text-book of and the manual of business in#
the Equity Courts, and I reeommend it most heartily to the pro-
fession. Respectfully yonrs, &c.

Cambridge, Nov. 25. .
.. .. .. .. The work of MI". Barbour on Chancery Practicp.,
appears to me entitled to high. approbatioD_ for its complete-
ness. accuracy and clear method. I am persuaded that it must
(as it ought tor have a. very extensive circulation among the pro.
_ lession throughout the States of the Union. He seems to me to
have nearly exhausted the materials, which are appropriate to
American Practice, without having overlooked the importance of
those furnished by the English Authorities anq Treatises.
From the Law Rep01·ter, Juno 1844.
We are free to confess, that; on first seeing this book, our
prepossessions were against it. We shrunk, with something like
want of beart, from. its ponderous size. It seemed a Bort of mare
magm'm, into which we were loth io enter. But a. careful exami-
nation of its massive contents, has led us to the conclusion that it
is _3 collection. of the rules, principles, and ·cases, which
illustrate the practice in chancery. embracing the results of the
English writers and decisions on the snbject, in conjunction with

In tbeir labors. The >:ngliSli treatise. on the SUbject are noto-
riously unsatisfactory to the practitioners in our country. The
treatise of Mr. Hoffman too ofl;en fails to enlighten the path which
h!B Engli.l!h brethren have left in obscurity. The present work is
larger and more comprehensive than any of its predecessors, and,
in the courts of our c.o_ex,prac-
tical val ne. ____
The work is divided into six books, for the purpose of mat:king
t.he several stages of a Buit
or indicating the nature of the pro-
ceedings treated of. These books are divided into chw.era-...w-hich
are subdivided into sec;Wn"..;' .
FIRST :R.o.wr11escribes the method of instituting and de-
fending--a-l!u1tin_the- ..court of chancery, and the mode of C()D-
duc.ting- it,frofii its commencement to: and inclUding the decree.
H The SECOND BOOK details the proceedings SUbsequent to the de-
cree. The various chapters of this book describe the practice up-
on appeals, the method of executing decrees, and the proceedings
under deerees and orders
embracing issues at law, feigned issues,
aetions at law, and proceedings in the Master's omce.
f' The THfRD BoeK is a sort of omnium gatherum, embracing va-
rious matters which could not well be introduced into either of the
preceding books, without interrupting the r{'gular of pro-
ceedings. The several chu-pters ot thiR book describe the points of
practice arising upon the vartous interlocutory applications: and
other incidental proceedings which, from time to time, occur in the
progress of- 8. cause; such as motions, petitions, affidavits, injuno--
tions, ne exeats, receivers, abatement and revivor
"The FOURTH BOOK relates to the different kinds of bills; the
object of which is, without encroaching too much upon the sub-
ject of pleading) to describe the peculiar practice incident to sueh
species of Lili. -
"The FIIo"TH BOOK embraces proceedings in special cases, such as
suits by judgment creditors, snits relating to mortgages, proceed-
ings by and against infants, proceedings respecting idiots, lunatics
and ha.bitual drunkards. bills for divorce, contempts, partition suits,
proceedinllS to prove wills in the court of chancery, &c.
,. 'I'he SIXTH BoeR relates to costs, the most important branch of
the whole SUbject, as it wiU: perhaps} be considp-red.
" The first three books, are contaiaed in the ftrflt VOlume, and the
l'emainder in the second. The text, or trea.tise, is followed by a
collection of forms. These have been collected from various
sources, and have been prepared with great care, and with a
to conciseness. They are arranged in the same manner as the tres..
tise, by books and chapters corresponding with thos. in the body
of the work."

I have examined Mr. Barhour's TreR.tise, and bave a high opinion
both of its plan and_execution. It embraces a subject of extensive
importance, and will be found emiot-utIy needful to those who are
entrusted with the administration of cr;miual law. As a compen-
dium of tha.t branch l f OUf jurisprudence, it will be interesting
&Jso to the general reader. A work of this kind has long been
needed in t'?-;s 0 lawyer or magistrate will deem his library
complete without It: ·Mr. :Barbour has exhibited indust.ry and dis-
crh:n;ination in the arrangement- of the sUbject, and the selection
of hIS to support the text. It thus becomes valuable as a di-
gest aDd book of reference. Thtf,o-for-ms which are arranged in tho

add anything to tho deservedly high reputation of tbe aut.hor for

this book to the as a work every wa.y worthy of the im·

position of the principles of criminal law j the definition vf
the various kinds and grades {'If offences; together with a great va-
riety of precedents for the necessary process and procet'ding-s in

Reports of Cases in Law and in Equity in the Supreme
Court of the State of New York, under the New Consti-
tution, 1846, by Oliver L. Barbour, Counsellor at Law. 7
vols. $35.00.
The members-of tbe legal profession are bere presented wit.h.a.
]ume of decisions, at law and in equity. of the Supreme Court o!New
York, organized under the provisions of the new· cOI:stitution of
1847. For_the information of persoDs residing out of the state, tbe
following brief analysis of our prf"sent judicial system given.
By section 8, of the 14th H.rticle of the new constitution, 'the
fices of chancellor: judges of the then county courts, and masters
a:nd examiners in chancery: except 8,S therein otberwife provided,
were aboli.bed from and after tbe first Mond.y of July. J8.7. Sec-
tion 6, of the same article) gave to the ehancellor and the f:upreme
reFpecti'vely, power to hear and determine such suits and
pt;:oceedings pending in the court of chancery and supreme court 88
.hould be ready, on tbe first· Monday of July, 1847, for hearing or
decbjo.D j ft.nd provided for the chancellor andjudgea
until tbe first day of July, H48, or until all such suits and pro-
ceedings should be sooner heard and determined. The old courts
beil'g thus swept out of existf!nce, section 3 of th.e 6th article of the
r.oustitntioD in their stead, a supreme court having
general jurisdiction in law and equity." Section 4 provided for the
division of the Fotate into eight judicial districts, Clf which the city
of New York is one; the others are to be bounded by county lines,
and to be a;nd equal in population, &s nearly a.s possible.
There are to be four justices of the supreme court in each dist.rict,
with a proviFion for-sur.h an additional number in the district
composed of the city of New York us may from time to time be au-
thorized by Such judges are to be classified 80 that one of the
justices or each diF-triet shall go eut of office at the end of every
two years; and after the expiration of thtdr tl!rms undpr such
the tt'crm of their office is to be eight years. Section
6, of the 6th article, declares that the shall have the
Shme to regulate the jurisdiction and proceedings in law
and equity. as they ba;ve hert:tefllre possessed. Sectio!! 6 directs
that provision Fhall be made by law for from time to
time. one or more of such justices to preside at the general terms
of the court to be held in the several districts. ]t also authorizes
any three or more of such justices, of whom the presiding justice
shall always be one, tA hold such general terms; and anyone or
more of them to hold special terms and circuit courts, end anyone
of them to prcs;de in court. of oyer and terminer. The 12th spc-
tion of the Bame article directs that the justices of lbe supreme
court shall be elected by the electors of the }everal judicial districts,
at such timt's as may be prescribed by law. The 4th section of the
14th article directed tbat the first judicial election sbould take
place at such time between the first Tuesday of April and the
second Tuesda.y of June 1847, at:: might be prescribed by law; stud
that thecoul'ts should resrectively enter upon their duties on the
first Monday of July tbereafter, but tbat tbe term of olllee of the
judges and justices should be aeemed to commence on the first day
of January, 1848. ,
To carry out these provlf:ioDs of the new constitution, the legis-
Inture. OD the 12th day of May, 1847. passed an "act in relation to
thcjudiciary." (Laws of 1847.p. 319.) By the 14tb section of tbe
tbird article of tbat act, it was provided tbat tbe justices of the
supreme court elected at the first election should be cla.Esified by
lot. in the manner and ;l-t the time therein directed j that the
cln:sses spould be one, two, and fou!-", to
the 'time of service of each j the class baving the shortest time to
sene being number one, and ,the term of office of drawn
in that class being 1wo years, and the terms of those drawn in
the other classes being. four, six and eight y(>ars. The 15th section
provided that the justice in each judicial distrit;t haviog the short-
est tim.) to serve, and who was not ajndge of the Court of Appeals,
DOT appointed or to fill a vacancy in the firRt class, should
be l\ prl'siding justice.-[By tbe act of April 4, 1848, the 15th scc-
tion of the judiciary act is amended so as to provide tbat in case
, of the death, abs(·nce, or inability of the presiding justice appoint-
ed to hold any general term, a.ny three justices convened to bold
Euch term may designate one of their number to preside at such
g.neral'erm.-Laws of 1848 p. 282."] Fy tbe 16th section it was
declared that the SUprf>IDp. court should possess the same
and exercise the jurisdiction, as was then and ex-
by the existing supreme court and court of chancery; and
that the justices thereof should possess the powers, and exercise
the j IJrisdictioD, then possessed aud exercised by the justices of the
supreme court, chancellor, vice chancellors, and circuit judge8, po
fa.r 8S the powers and jurisdiction of Eaid courts and officers
be consistent with the' CODstitution
and the provisions of that act.
The 6th section of the second at,ticle of this ac', provided thatf..:·ur
of the supreme court, to be judges of the Com-t of Appeals,
should every year be i::elect€d from the class of Eaid justices baving
the shortest time to serve j and alternately, first, from the first,
third. fifth, and seventh judicial districts, and tben from the sec-
ond. fourth, sixth and eighth j a.nd that they should serve
. as jUdgcs of the Court of Appeals until the last day of December,
] 848. Four justices of the supreme court hadng bp.en selected for
judges of the Court of Appeals. in pursuance of this viz.
one from the first, one from the'third, one from the fifth, and one
from the seventh districts, the supreme court was composed of :l8
jUdges during the time of these reports.
The j udietary act made provision for the bolding of a. general
term of the supreme court in every county banDI! a. popUlation ex-
ceeding forty thousand, at least once in eTery calenller year. and
as much oftener as the business of the connty should require, and
in every oth.r county, except Hamilton, as often as once in two
. years; and directed that mch terms, in the last mentioned coun·
ties, should be 80 arranged, that at least one term should be held
in each county, or in a county adjoining, in every calf>nda.r year.
It also provided for the of at least. two special terms in each
county, exc!!:pt Hamilton. to an4 determiue non-enumerated
business in suits and a.t law, and to take testimony,
and hear and determine suits and proceedings in equity; ana. for a
re hearing of such Buits and proceedinge:, at a general term. The
act also directed that each of the justices F:hould, during the term
of his office. be employed in holding the general and 8peeial terms
of the supreme court, the circuit courts, and courts of oyer and ter-
miner, in each of the several judicial districts, in proportion as
nearly equal as might be, to the business of such courts in the dis-
tricts respectively j and that their duties should be so assigned
that each justice should hold an equal proport.ion, as near as might
be, of the general and terms of the several courts.
The above summary will give an idea of tha organization, juris-
and powers of the new court. And the decisions contain.
ed in this volume Will, it is confidently believed, convey a very- fa-
vorable impression of the learning and ability of the jUdges, and
demoIlBtrate the soundness of the principle which gave to the peo·
pIe the power of electing their judges. :, .......

your work on the Jurisdiction ana Practice of the Admiralty for

been by the prJfessioD in England, owing to the various easel
which had arisen. and tb.e changes whicb h,ad been made during the

of those changes had been w render obsolete a considerable portion
of Mr. Roper's work-so much that Mr. Bright. after spending some

Messrs. BANKS, GouLD & Co.:
Gent.: I have examined, with attention, "Darfs Vendors
and Purchasers of Real Estate," edited by Mr. Waterman. It
is a most excellent practical work. Its lucid and methodical
arrangement, and the fact that the more modern decisions both
in England and the United States is incorporated in the text
and notes, give to the book a value beyond that of any work
on the subject wbich has come under my notice.
Mr. Waterman's General Comparative View of Real Prape/rty-
in England and this country, and his elaborate notes, especiaUy
on questions growing out of our registration acts, enhance very
much the value of the work to the American lawyer.
Yours, truly, .
(FromHon. JOB. Henry Lumpkin, Chief Justice, State of Georgia.)
, Athens, December 10th, 185l.
Gentlemen: Various indispensable engagements have pre-
vented me, until now, from perusing "Dart's Compendium of
the Law and Practice of Vendors and Purchasers of Real Estate,"
which you were kind enough to send me. I thank you sin-
cerely for the information which I have received from this
The extent of our territory, and the cheapness of our soil in
the South and West, have hitherto prevented this head of the
law from assuming that prominence which it has in England
and the older states, North and East. But our rapid growth
in population and wealth, the extension of our railroad system,
'and other improvements, giving rise as they do, not only to the
permanent and substsntial improvement of our farms, but also
to the tasteful decoration and embellishment of our houses,
both in town and country, are all tending to enhance greatly
the value of our lands, to increase our local attachments, and
thus impart an interest and importance to the law of real es-
tate, which, with us, it has never before possessed.
Dart's Treatise, combining as it does, all that is valuable in
the works of Sugden and others which,have,p'recededjt on
the same subject, makes its appearance, therefore, very op-
portunely for the increasing wants of our growing conntry.
And being well satisfied, from careful perusal of it, botll of its
accuracy and the soundness of its doctrines. I can entertain no
doubt of tile high estimation with which this very usefnl and
most thoroughly written book "ill be regarded by the profes-
I need scarcely remark that the English law of Real Estate
had its foundation in principles of Jeudal policy. Its funda-
mental feature is, to cherish and perpetuate aristocratic insti-
tutions. Many of its provisions are directly hostile to repub-
lican government. To modify the law of real proDerty, and
to adapt it to the actnal state of the country and the wants of
our people, has constituted a very leading branch of both the
Colonial and State legislation of the respective states of the
Union. These changes are traced with great clearness and
accuracy in the copious notes and references appended to the
work, as well as in the admirable epitome of the Law of Real
Property in England and the United States, prefixed to it by
the American editor, 111'. Waterman.
Wishing you all the emolument which this publication so
richly deserves,

Your obedient sen'ant,

An eXycrience of eleven years in teaching in the department of
:!\fedieal together with a Irnowledge of the wants of
the legal and medical professions, in regard to it,-have led the au-
th"r to the c·lmpilation of the work before us. The objects chiefly
had in view have been a·methodical, arrangement of the
topi.cs. snrl a condensation of the knowledge now possessed, Rod an
exhibition of it in a clear, natural and logical order, together with
fiuch illustrations 3R were det:med necessary to an application
of the principles to practice. The design appears to been
well exp-cuted, and the publishers have done all that is necessary to
the work in an RcceptablQ dress.

to an exposition of the facts and principles embraced in Mt!dical
Jurisprudence." There is a chapter in the work devoted to Medi-
cal Evidence which is well worthy -"he perusaL of medical genue-
men. In givin.! evidence the author recommends that the la.n::-
guage made use of should be plaiD) simple, and if possible, devoid
of all technical terms." :"i othj ng can be better established than
that when the principles of a. science Me well understolJd. they be-

Whatever may be deficient in the work of Dr. neck, will be found
amply supplied in tile one of which the title is placed at the head of
this article. The a.uthor, Mr. Dean, is a highly respectable Counsellor
at Law, and Professor of Merlical Jurisprudence in the.Albany Medical
Colle!!:e, who has had an experience of eleven years in teachmg in this
department. He tells us, in his preface, that his impressions as ta the
wants of the legal and medical led to the compilation of his
work. "It uoes not," he says, U propose to add new heads or general
topics for discussion j to deal in original disquisitions upon doubtful-or
unsettled principles [questions], or to offer mere novelties to those in
pursuit of knOWledge on its various subjects. The objects chiefly had
In view have been a :qtethodical, of the
ics legitimately embraced in the department; and. In the treatment of
each, a condens:ation of the knowledge now possessed. and an
tion of it in a clear, natural and logical order, together with such illus-
trations as were deemed'necessary to make an application of the princi-
ples to practice." In all this we thiQk our worthy author has substan-
tially succeeded.· Although, as he observes, the science he treats of,
"unlike many others, admits of no logical arrangement," yet he hail
brought together tOOse subjects, that are at all related to each. other, £n
a manner which appears to us more convenient and less exceptional
than any other tFuit has faUen under our notice. The subjects· .of
which he treats are arranged under five· general heads or classes.
Thejirst includes questIons arisin.f out of the relations of sex, and
comprises. I. impotence and Sleriltty j 2. Hermaphrodites, Doubtful
Sex, and Monsters; 3. Rape; 4. Pregnancy; 5. Legitimacy; and
6. Delivery .
1'he second class comprehends questions arising out of injuries m·
flicted on the organization, embracmg 1. InfamiClde j 2. Wounds j 3.·
Poisons; 4. Personsfound Dead. ' .
The third includes arising out of diseases or affections in
the nature of disease, that disqualify both from rights and
performing duties-being principally Insanity, embracing all the dif.
ferentforms of mental alienation -
The fourth includes questions arising out of deceptive practices or
preten4ed disqualifications, principally Feigned Diseases. And

We cannot conclude this paper, protracted as it has been, without
noticmg a circumstance, less remarkable, perhaps, than natural,
namely, that the work of Dr. fleck, a physician, has more of the eha·
racter of a law book than of a medical dlsqui!'1'ition j while that of Mr.
Dean, a lawyer, assumes the aspect more or a medical than of a juridi-
cal treatise-so prone are we to value ourselves rather upon the learn-
ing which is extraneous, than upon that which properly belongs to our
Prom the Lata Reporter.
We do not pretend to any familiarity with the science of mediciliC,
and it may be for that reason that we are inclined to form a highly fa-
vorable opinion oft-he above work. 'Vhat, in our view, constitutes ils
great recommendation. is its simplicity, its freedom from mere techm·
catity. It may be consulted by anyone not versed in the medical art.
with great ease and profit. To this recommendation should also be ad-
ded an acknowledgmC'nt of the clear and luminous method which eha·
raeterizes the treatise, and which increases its value.

''Y. Derby & Co. It is a volume of 654 pages j and from the examina-
tion we have been able to give it, we think it the best text-book there is
upon the subject. It has the fare and very great merit of condensation
occupying not much more than hall' the space of Deck, or Chitty, ilnd
yet treating of each subject as fully as either of those authors. \\Te
would commend the chapter on Insanity, as cOn1aining the

The publishers intend that the American edilion skall be published
nnd ready for deli very within a very short period after ita publication
in England. The profession are fully satisfied, from long experience,
that no condensation, abridgement, or omission of these very important
reportR, or in fact of any reports, ean give satiSfaction, or be rehed up-
on with Ill"..t be had to the report. themselves.

The 29th Volume comprises the eases deoided by Lord Langdale,
Master of the Rolls, during the years 1843 and 1844. .
The 30th Volume comprlse. those cases decided by Viee-Chancellor
Wigram, during the years 1844, 1845 and 1846.
We believe the profession for some time, been convinced of the
excellence of the plan of re.public.alion adopted by 1\1r. Dunlap. If it
is not, it is quite time that the merits and advantages oftheaystem pur-
sued by so pains.takin!! an annotator .hould be fully appreciated. The
method pursued in varIous reprints of English Legal Reports, of leav-
ing out all such cases as do not seem adapted to this country, hR!II
been carefully avoided in these; 7th Beavan, and 4th Hare, are as com-
plete as when issued from the English Press, with all the admirable
reasoning of LorA Langdale, who, as Mr. Bickersteth, divided for y.eaT5
the leadership of the Rolls Court with Mr. Pepy. the 'Pre.ent Lord
Cottenham, and of Vice-Chancellor Sir James Wigram, a most pro-
found equity lawyer, carefullly preserved.
Mr. Dunlap has endeavoreil (how far successfully we leave to the
pmtit;o"r who !indo the labor of preparing his case half performed,)
to increase the value of reports by a re(erence in every case 'of
importance to the leading English and American authorities on the
pomts deciJeu: renderin!4 the reports 'Virtually commentaries, without
the necessarily'attending wOIks of thaL character. There
has within the last few y.ears been a gradually increa:dng demand for
Chancery Heports; the progress-of bur country in <;.ommerciaJ
perity, and the necessary increase of complicated litigation thereon at·
rending, producing an unwilling conviClioli on the minds of profession.
at men, that the modes of proceeding in courts of justice, adapted to
.the wants of a sparse p0tJulation, cannot be used with equal advantagc
in great commercial communities.
This edition of the Chancery Heports, addition to the advantages
J we have pointed out possess The additional attraction of being hand..
Bomely bouno, and printed good type on excellent paper.

The fact that this book has been re-published by oldest and most
extensive law book firm H on this side of the water," perhaps, alone
sufficient evidence that it is a work required by the great bOlJy of our
brethren. From their long experience, Messrs. Dan k., Gould &; Co. have
a perfect knowledge of the wants of the profession j and as there is con.
nected with their house editorial talent of the first ability, they are sure
never to publish or re.publish any but books of sterling value! It is
our in,tention, iI\some future issue, to give our readers a history of the
H rise and progress" of this house; for an account of a firm which has
added 8uch a vast amount of valuable matter to the archives of Ameri.

. This volume was received at so fate an hour, that we have not found
. time to examine in detail the cases it contains; nor do we think it ne.
cesB.1.ry to do so. Nothing need be said of the value of the late Lord
Cottenham's decisions, for it is well known they ate among the ablest
diat have ever been promulged. _
As to the notes of Judge Smith, although:we have not had an oppor·
tunity to examine them with care, yet from the well-known reputation
of that gentleman for comprehensi \l:e research, searching analysis, and·
studious fideli,ty in c911er.tmg and comparing his cases and authorities,
:we know that whatever he undertakes, will be well done. The profes.
sion are. indebted to him for many valuable contributions to the law,
among which, it is sufficient to mention hIS U Commentaries on Consti-
tutional and Statute Law," as also his reported decisions whiJe on the
bench. We shall recur to this volume in whenwe hope in Borne
Bort to discharge that obligation to his eminent abilities and worth,

The discipline aud reputation of the army are deeply in"olved in th.
manner in which military courts are conducted, and justice. adminis·
wred. The duties, therefore, that devolve on officers who may be ap-
poInted to sit as members of courls martial are of the most grave aoet
Important character: that the8e duties may be discharged WIth justice
and propriety, it is incumbent on all officers to apply themselve,s dili-
geptly to the acquirement of a competent knowledge of military law;
to make themselves perfectly acquamted with the acts of Congress re-
lating to the army and militia, wllh the regulations and general orders,
and with the practice of military courts.
Military jurisprudence has. of late years. undergone r.onsiderable
changes. and been much improved j consequently the practice of -eourts
martIal has experienced modifications to corrree:pond with such im-
pro'Vement. A book, embracing the improved method of proceeding in
courts martial, whether general or regimental, including courts of in-
quiry, has been much ".Ought after_ especially one that could be regard-
ed as a manual adaptc4f to the use of the army and militia of the United
States.. This work is intended to be such a manual. It not offered

There ar.e also appended. [onns of orders for appointing the various
descriptions of military courts. and of recording their proceedings.
The author ackno_wledges himself under great obligations to the hon-
orable Benjamin Franklin Butler, late Attorney-General of the United
States, to wh.ose inspection this wort, in its original form, was sub-
mitted. After carefully perusing every paragraph. the Attorney-Ge'"
.eral made such amendments and additIOns as appeared to him proper,
all which have been adopted. It may, therefore. be said. that the work
has received the general approbation of that high functionary.
It will be a source of real pleasure to the author. if this work should
prove to be such as to answer all the purposes for which it was inte.nd-
ed, viz,: the introduction of a regular system of procedure in courts
martial, and the maintenance of order and discipline in the service. It
is a well established fact, that the infrequency of courts martial is in
proportion to the intelligence and well regulated zeal of the officers of
the army. It is as much a duty to prevent, as to punish crime. An
officer may do much to this elfect, by tiliiely interference. A judicious
intercourse with his meo, gives him that knowledge of charac-
ters, which enables him to admonish with equal benefit to them and
advantage to the service. They should feel an assurance, that, while
their rignts are guarded, their will not go unpunished.
A Treatise on the Doctrine of Presumption and Presump-
. tive Evidence, as affecting the Title to Real and Personal
Property, by John H. Mathews, of Lincoln's Inn, Ban:is-
ter at Law. With Notes and References to American
Cases, by Benjamin Rand. 1850. $4.00.
The object of the following work is to investigate aud explain tho
doctrine of Presumption and Presu;mptiv8 Evidence in their appli.
cation to Titles, and to show how far defects in· titles arising from
the want of direct evidence may be snpplied by e.tabUshed pre.
sumptions, or \iy those which are afforded from the particular> cir-
cumstances of the (';&S8.
It was at an early perjod of his professional studies that the au-
thor was impressed with a sense of the utility of a work of this de-
scription. On ljItlmost every other subject connected with the pra;c-
tice of cllDveyaocing, treatises or digests of the cases already ex-
isted; these afforded a ready means of acquiring all the informs..
tion extant) and removed many of the diftlculties which the various
subjects they embraced presented to the conveyancer. But when
questions arose which were to be determined by the principles of
presumption (and to such questions every Abstract of Title gives
more or 1es8 occasioD,) recourse could be had only to detached
cases and judicial dicta in the books of reports, and to casual pas· _
sages ill the text· hooks> >The labor and difficulty in such a state or...-
things were considerable: and the present work owes its
a conviction, that this labor and difficulty would be materl1l1lY di.
minished by &oy attempt, however imperfect, to collect and to ra.
into system the authorities on tHe 8ubject, which were then
up and down in some hundreds of volumes.
This being the first work that has appeared on the subject, and
the plau"and arrangement of it having therefore been left in a pe-
cuU:u manner to the author's own disoretion, he trusts it will meet.
'vith the indUlgence of the prAfcssion. Apprehensive that errol'S
as well as omissions will be discovered, it is with unfeigned difD-
dellce that he presents the result of his to the pUblic.
In conclUding, the author desires to express his thanks to his
friend Edward John Lloyd, Esq., of LincC?ln'rl Inn, for several valu-
able suggeslioufl in the course of the work, ot" which he 'has availed
LhlColn's Inn, December,.1826.
In regard to the Treatise of Mr. Mathews upon. the Doctrine of
Presumptions and Presumptive Evidence, it can hardly be necessa..
ry to say more, than that the &utbo:' has collected and reduced in-
to a system the numerous decisions upon this important branch of
the law, and that it is the en!y>book in the English language which
treats exclusively upon this "subject. .
The American Editor has aimed to Dote all the cases which have
occurred in the American Courts, wherein &ny of the doctrines or
principles contained iR the original text have been discussed, and
sueh English cases as have been published since the work of Mr.
Mathews came from the press, In doing this he has thougM i*
would best comport with the plan of the original work to refer to
tho cases merely, rather than the marginal notes with ex..
t.racts. which would in most instances be but a rellctition of the
doctrines contained in the text.

my opinion of the merit of this work. Ana this I may do in a

and, so far as I am able to jUdge. equalled only by Peters' Digest of
Cases in the Courts of the United States. They are both got up
pretty much upon the same plan.
By way of testing its accuracy. I have referred to many of the
Reports frem which the Digest was composed--baving the pleasure
of owning all except Coleman's Cases of Caines' and
Hall's Reports, and Anthon's Nisi Priuf.::-and in every instance,

Messrs. BANKS, GOULD & Co.:
Gentlemen,-For three or four months past, J have used. as a
bflOk of reference, yeur last edition of Clerke's and Hoganls Digest
of the Reports of your State.
The work is in a most convenient form; the n.rrangement appears
to be complete j and the points decided are clearly stated. I know
nothing further, desirable in such a Digest, except accuracy of refer.
ance. As I have found no error in that particular. I presume that
object bas been attained; bllt no reader of the work could speak
with certainty, on that point, without an amount of labor almost
equa.l to the compila.tion.
The style in which Lbe book is given to the public speaks for it-
self j and does credi t even to a house known as 10Dg as yours has

Messrs. DANKS, GOULD & CO. :
Gentlemen.-It was not until a rew days ago, that I bad tbe plea'

I bad received a copy of the new Americap. edition. published by·
you. of Mr. Phillipps' 'Work on Evidence, in 4 vola., which some time
ago came to my ha.nds. I beg you now to aceept of my sineerp.
thankll for this most acceptable present. I bave long considered
Phillipps' work on Evidence) as the most thorough, accurate,
a.nd able, that I have ever seen j a.nd [ bave used it more
Iy than any other. Tbe seventh edition. wbich you bave re-pub-
Hslled, has been materially improved by the learned Author, with
the assistance of his distinguished friend, Mr. Amos. Your Edi·
tiOD with the very extensive and learned notes of Mr. Cow·
en a.nd Mr. Hill to the first volume, and those of the anonymous
editor of the second volume, appears to me entitled to a decided
preference over all others, for an American lawyer. It seems to me
the most a.mple, as well &S most satisfactory collection of principles
and authorities upon this most important subject. that I ever
sellin. I cannot doubt that it will receive an extenSive patrona-ge
from thE" profession, proportionate to its great merits.

Friend and servant,

N. Y. Law Scbool, May 22, 1843.
Gentlemen.-Tn answer to your question as to the result ·o'f my
experience of Justice Cowen'J:l edition of Phillipps's Treatise on
Evidence: as a tp-xt book, I now state that it has exceeded my
pertations. You are aware, that the interesting subject of Evi·
denee engaged nearly our exclusive attention for several months of
the session, thus haTing an ample opportunity of testing its merits.
The original work is so well known, that it is scarcely necessary
for me to S8.y, that whether as a. tf>xt book for students: or a. work_of
referenclll and study for practitioners, it is unequalled ia precision
of la.nguage, felicity of arrangement, and the general fidelity with
which the cases, iUustrating -its positions, are tr:anscribed. With
respect to the voluminous notes of Justice Cowen ;--in every re-
spect, they equal the text in all tbe qualities which I bave mention-
ed, and Furpass it in learning a.nd research j showing certainly not
lees leg&! acumen, and greater industry,-industry untiring and

Mr_ Phillipps' work has so long held a high rank in public r.pula-
tiOD as a standard treatise on the law 01 evidence, that it is uone·
_ eessary for 'Us 1:0 speaJ\: bere of jts merita. As regardE! the edition
DOW before '08. it is to any wbich has e..,er before ap..
pealed from the Ameriean pres'!I. The text and Dotes, which com-
prise five large octavo volumes, coutailling o..,er one thousand
pilkes, art' executed in the best style of modern typographical art.
The text of the work is a reprint of Mr. Phillip'Ps' late edition
which was re·written by him, after the pnblication of" Phillipps
on Evidence, with Cowen and Hill's Notes." It is wen known that
Mr. Phillipps, in that profiting by the labors of his Ameri-
can editor,!t, mainially altered alMl improved the arrangement
of his work, and added several new heads. The required change in
the arrangelp.ent of the notes to correspond with these alterations,
although a of immense labor, has been carefully made The
American editor, Mr. Van Cott, has labored diligently to indicate
the altel'ations made in the law of evidence, since 1he last edition
was published j and, from aD examination of his we
believe that no case material to tbis purpose has been oterlooked or
omitted. To select from the-vast number of English and America.n
decisions, made within the last ten years, upon points in the law of
evidence, those only which have involved anything really new, was
a work "requiring more than ordinary application and ability.
The editor bas i1hown himself p'ossessed of both in an eminent de.
gree. Where the law haa been alte--red, be has indicated the alter•
. stiOD; where a point was in doubt. he has brought forward all re·
cent adjud·ications that would tend to clear it up j and where a
judgment was remarkable for its }t.>arnmg} or eRPounded a rule witb.
Uncommon force} the case has, been noted, although the point ad.
- judged was not new. This edition. pl'8senting as it does, a complete
. and accurate view of thA present state of the law of evidence} will
be fouud an indispensable adjunot to the library of every praotical

Banks, Gould & Co.; of the City of New York, and Gould.
Banl>:s & Co.,.()f Albany, Law Booksellers, are preparing
an Edition of this work for the press. It will contain all
the additions and alterations that may be adopted and 41-
troduced in the new Constitution, and the enactments of
the Legislature of 1848, upon the same. The publishers,
in order to have this important work unexceptionable to
the public, have contracted with Messrs. Samuel Stevens
and John A,. Collier, Counsellors at Law, of tbe City of
- Albany, to prepare for them this great wor1l:. These gen-
- tlemen are'well known to the judiciary, and to the mem-
_bers of the bar of !his state; it is useless, therefore, to say
any thing that can add to their qualifications for the task;
they are considered to be at the head of our bar. Their
character and reputation as lawyers are at stake. They
will make it the best work of the kind extant. All the de-
cisions of our Courts, and other useful matter that have
any analogy or bearing uron the construction, intent,
meaning or explanation 0 our Constitution and Laws
will be abridged, and introduced in the text or body of the
work where it properly belongs; in fact it will, (as is in-
tended,) supersede all other editions of the Revised Statutes.
The publishers will commence printing this work at the
close of the session of 1847, and they promise to hasten
its completion l!s f!lSt as practicable-nothing on their
part will be omitted to make it useful and cheap. The
paper, printing and binding will be of a superior quality,-
and the price as low as it can be afforded, a trifle over the
_cost-looking to futme editions for their profit.

lIf ignorant or careless reporters will appreeiate-of clear
statements of facts, intelligent arguments of couDscl, and we have
every reasOn to believe: accurate syllabuses oftbe points adj,JJdged.
The reports are made up entirely of cases in chancery, heard in
tbe city of New York; before Vice-Chancellor Sandford; milny of
th,·m are in themselves of a highly interesting cbaracter, to which
additional interest is given from the fact af their having been gen-
erally argued by the ablest members of the New York bar, a body
spcond in intelligence and accomplishment to none in this or any
country. In Temple v. Hawley, Vol. I. p. ]64, the power of an in-
fant f('male under 21. upon the eve of marriage, to make a settle-
ml>nt which will be afterwards binding, is elaborately investigated.

::nd solicitors purchasing from their clients is severely reprobat.ed,

inti'resting questions of constitutional law'ever raiseJ in this coun
try i the arguIDt.'nts..ofcouDsel and the opinJon of the court occupy
nearly one hundred pages. The question arose under a claim made
to rC&.1 estate by a youog..female. In order to establish a title citizen-
ship was r:ecesfl.ary j it was proved that she had been born in this
country of parcnh, who bad neverb€come naturalized: and who
rdurned with to OWn country while she was an infant.
It had nev,'r been decided that birth alone in this country is neces-
sllry to cODstitute citizenship, and the examina.tion here made of
1be alien and na.turalization law8 is interesting in the extreme.
We have remarked.-also, several cases of interest in the second vo·

The pubashersln presenting to the pnbllc "volume of the d'ci·
siolls of the Snperior Court of the City of Ne.. York, beg leave to
reCer brielly to the po.iUou "nd ch&ract.r of that tribunal -
It has jurisdiction of all actions, in which, either the subjPct mat.
tE'f is within the city, or the parties are there served with prOCei:i8.
Under the Judiciary Act of ]847, and the Code of Procedure, this
jurisdiction extend. to equitable, as ..elias legal actions. By both
of these statutes, its decisions are subject to review in the Court of
Appeals, and are removed directly thither for that purpo.e.
Thus, in the City of New York, and in respect of parties there
served with process, although residing elsewhere; the Superior
Court is in point of civil jurisdiction, on the same level with the
present SuprAme Court of the State.
Formerly, when its jUdgments were reviewed in the late
Cout't, and ",heR it had no equitable jurisdiction, it became, and
for nearly twenty years was, the principal commercial court in the
city. Probably no single legal tribunal in the United States, h""
within that period, passed upon &8 many important questions of
commerciallif.w, or upon suits involving 80 much property, &s has.
the New York Superior Court. From its elevated character, It.
situation in the American metropolis of trade and commerce, and
its enlarged juriRdiction; it is believed that faithful reports of its
decisions, will be an advantage tq the ~ a r , not only of this city 8,nd
state, but of the ..hole country. The bKr of New York, ha. long
expressed a desire for such- a publication j and JUdge Sandford
having, for a time, in addition to his arduous duties on the bench,
und'"!rtaken the laber of preparing thp.m, the publishers are confi.
dent that the series of reports now offered, 'tIVill command the ap.
probation of the profession, both from their entire accuracl .."d
their intrinsic merit.

In the present work Mr. Wheaton has occupied m.ost important
ground, w11ieh h'as thus far remained open. The interesting history of
Mr. Ward covers the period only antecedent to the trme of Gtotius,
which was somewhat ea,Jior tWin the peace of Westphalia, leaving,
therefore, the immense historic space of subsequent years untouched
by his agreeable pen.
With-less persuasiveness of style, but more practical intimacy With
the subject, and a sharper sense, Mr. Wheaton has now supplied what
1\lr. Ward at one time promised to complete. His work WIll be I,ead,
not only by every lawyer, but by every person who aims to take any
part in public affairs.

DelLr Sir,-I am gratilled to find, thlLt you intend pUblishing all
the interesting Criminal Trials which have taken place throughout
the United States. The crisis is favorable to such an enterprise.
Our law must every day become. more rational, and it is highly de-
sira.ble that it should be uniform. iuch a compilation of American

risoo, the surest way of knowledge j and the Dotes and references

be, will open a vast field of speCUlation, a.nd 8, !ture road to

Yours respectfully,
W,LLfUl SAMl'S(I:"'.
Notwithstanding I have detailed the plan of this work In the
numbers as they have been issued from the press, and in the public
journals, J cannot omit saying a word or two bere, at the close of
the second volume, in relation tn It. My. object. is, to collect
"nd publish ...ery criminal trial that has occurred in the UDited
States, making & complete collection of American State Trials.
They will contain trials in Cull, decisioB Of the judges, state papers,
reports,. &c., and everJthing that can tend to throw
light upon. or elucidate the criminal jurisdiction of our country.
Tbey will, in most instances, be publi8hed entire; and if all the
cas-es, &.e., can be (and I have not the least_doubt, from
the mass of matter already in my posseooion, they can,) It Is dim.
cult to conceive, a publication of greatt'r importance, in a natipnal
point of view, than such collection would be j nor of one more use-
ful to tbos·e gentltmen engaged in the practice of the criminal law.
To make the work still more valuable, the cases hereafter will be
l'<et up in type similar to that of the preface in this volume; by that
mE'ans a. much greater qua.ntity of matter will be printed on a page,
without any additional expense to subscribers. It is also contem·
plated to add to each volume, in tae form of an·appeq,dix, the forms
used in criminal proceedings in the United states. will be
printed with the greatest care and accuracy.
I hope the preface to this volume will be found useful as a refer-
ence: &c. 'rhe acts of Congress have been copied verbatim. and
the construction given to them by courts of justice follow, each in
their order: so that the reader will before him the statutes of
tbe United States, and the adjudication of the courts upon them.
If it can aid the learned, who have not time to look into a gJ'eat
number of books for principles collected within the. small compass
of this preface j or if it can assist those who are beginning their
stlldies, and are at a loss for a and systematic view of the
principles of criminal jurisprudence, I shall congratulate myself on
being of some little service to those to whom I am always Willing to
be indebted; and for the timo, e:opense and trOUble, (for roally it
has cost me not aliltle of either) shall consider myself amply remu·

No work has appeared since the Revised Statutes were passed, con-
taining precedents of proceedings in couns of ree;ord in this state, ex-
cept the book" of forms and precedents." complIed seven years ago.
by Mr. Tillinghast, the greater part of which was printed before all
the Revised Statutes were published; consequently his forms, in sev-
eral respects, have been materially affected or rendered inappropriate
by those and other statutes subsequently passed, and by the judicial
decisions gh'ing construction to them.
To remedy this evil, the present compilation is offered to the profes-
SIOn and the public. It cannot, however, be reasonably supposed, nOt
is it pretended, that within the compass of one 'Volume every precedent
necessary in a suit at law can 'be contained. All that is pretended or
hoped ,s, that it does embrace many useful forms to aid the student
and the bar in the pr0l!:ress of litigation. -From standard law writers,
such as Lilly, Richardson, Chitty, Tidd, Story, and others.
the compiler has freely drawn for precedents. He has also resorted
to our own reporters for the same purpose. In every instance he has
Bought to make those precedents conform to the existing .statutes. On
some occasions, too, he has adopted drawn, by able counsel,
in causes then actually pending in our courts. He ought likewise to
add, that some of the formal particularly in ejectment, partition. and
replevin, he ha.CJ taken from Mr. Tillinghast's volume ; but he must say
at the same time, that he has taken the liberty of altering and modify-
ing them in several particulars, (except such of them as the Supreme
Court had revised and adopted,) and also of addmg others under the
The compiler has given in this work precedents in mandamus. pro·
hibition and audita querela, and in actions of account, waste amt
sance. He thought {.hey were wanted by the bar and has accordingly
furnished them. He has also given coIisecu!ively the forms usually
adopted in conducting a suit to judgment by default anri on verdict.
. He cannot flatter himself that the work is wholly free from censure!
Exclusive of the errata which have been Doted (and most of which
arose on account of his absence from the city of Albany during the re-
vision of the work,) there may be others justly liable to crilicism. He
bas endeavored to remove at least one object.ion:' an objection often
and truly made against books of this kind. tha.t of having a confused or
imperfect Index He has endeavored in this worl< to give a full and
complete Indo;, together with an Analytical Table, and he hopes
will both prove faithful guides. The order in which he intended
the form,:, to appear has sometimes been deranged j he trusts however,
that this is but a venial error, and if the precedent be foundj Ihe
quirer for it will probably feel indifferent as to the particular part
of the book in which it may have been inserted. In conclusion, he
states that there are notes and 60me practical fonna ill' this work which
may prove useful, thQugh not falling strictly wtthin the or pur·
pose of ita publication; he has also furnished an abstract of precedents,
&c., contained in oui' own reports, and a table of abbreviations.
