William Story, finding no comprehensive American treatise onthe law of sales of personal property in the mid-19thCentury, immersed himself in the study of Americanjurisprudence and made comparisons with foreign cases toproduce his work which was heralded by the legal community."The continual increase of commerce, not only gives birth tonew questions, but materially modifies establisheddoctrines." (Preface). Story directed his work to providinga full treatise on the whole body of law relating to salesas it existed at the time in America and England.References are also made to the laws of France and Scotland.
