This digest of statutes with explanatory glosses was thefirst book of its kind. Conceived for the layman, it wasintended to be a pocket companion for the traveler and auseful addition to his reference shelf. The anonymouseditor felt a need for this book because the British were amobile people "whose Dominions and Factories lie dispersedin every Quarter of the habitable World, whose Traffick isunlimited, and extends to every Thing that either Earth orSeas produce" (v).
