This was the eighth edition of Joseph Story's classic work revised, with additions and notes by Nicholas St. John Green. It is the only edition undertaken by Green, friend ofHolmes, whose "extraordinary power of (revealing) warm and breathing truth" was perceived by Peirce and equally esteemed by Holmes. "The text books of law, prepared by Judge Story have been too long before the public and have too long received the unanimous approval of both American and English Jurists to require commendation at the hands of any reviewer. They stand deservedly at the head of the listof modern legal commentaries. No lawyer can afford to be without them...the publication of this new edition of Story on Agency will be gratefully welcomed by the profession."- 8 W. Jurist 509 (1874)
