Overview

Reprint of the uncommon third and final edition. This book grew out of an article in the Encyclpedia Brittanica. An "instant classic," it soon became a fixture on reading lists and bibliographies. According to the Law Quarterly Review, "no one who has read the book can have felt any doubt that the author had mastered his authorities, or that he had a singularly wide and profound knowledge of the continental literature dealing with the subject" (15:198). The second and third editions were equally well-received. The third is the best edition because it contains the equally valuable notes of Goudy and Grant.
