Originally published in 1783, Emerigon's learned treatisewas praised by James Kent, who said it "very far" surpassed"all preceding works in the extent, value and practicalapplication of his principles. It is the most didactic,learned and finished product extant on the subject. ...Inthe language of Lord Tenterdon, no subject in Emerigon isdiscussed without being exhausted, and the eulogy is as justas it is splendid." Meredith's able translation iscomplemented by brief biography of the author and achronology of the book's compilation. Emerigon was theleading French authority on commercial law duringthe 18th and early 19th centuries. Kent, Commentaries onAmerican Law 359 cited in Marvin, Legal Biobliography (1847)293.
