Holdsworth,who holds this work in high regard, observes that it wasonly the second title devoted to the subject. Holdsworthadds that a comparison between Pulton and (the lesscomprehensive) Staunford "enables us to appreciate theeffect of the additions to and alterations of the criminallaw made during this period, both by the legislature, and bythe judges of the common law courts and of the Court ofStar Chamber" (392-393).
