This was the eighth edition of Joseph Story's classic workrevised, with additions and notes by Nicholas St. JohnGreen. It is the only edition undertaken by Green, friend ofHolmes, whose "extraordinary power of (revealing) warm andbreathing truth" was perceived by Peirce and equallyesteemed by Holmes. "The text books of law, prepared byJudge Story have been too long before the public and havetoo long received the unanimous approval of both Americanand English Jurists to require commendation at the hands ofany reviewer. They stand deservedly at the head of the listof modern legal commentaries. No lawyer can afford to bewithout them...the publication of this new edition of Storyon Agency will be gratefully welcomed by the profession."-8 W. Jurist 509 (1874)
