As Marvin pointed out in 1847, it was certainly the most complete and wide ranging text of its day. In addition to American and English sources Story draws on the work of Heineccius and other civil lay jurists. Marvin,Legal Bibliography (1847) 673. Apart from James Kent, no man has had greater influence on American law than Joseph Story. He was Dane Professor of Law at Harvard and an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. His many books have been cited extensively in American and in Britain, and he remains an authority today. Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. Distributed by William S. Hein & Co., Inc.
