**** The first ed. (Harvard UP, 1970) is cited in BCL3. This comprehensive study of the life and work of Jos. Stella, the early 20th c. modernist painter, discusses both the origin of his work and his influence on other American artists. A full-color frontispiece of Stella's Tree of my life, along with 135 black-and-white illustrations, make this the most illustrated book yet published on an important American artist. Watson (law, U. of Georgia) explains that the 1857 Dred Scott decision, and so all of its consequences, was a mistake due to Supreme Court Justice Story's (1779-1845) misreading of his source when he wrote an influential treatise on resolving laws that conflict.
