In the Dictionary of National Biography Zechariah Chafeesaid this is a "work of considerable value." The first bookon the subject, it is an engaging study that reflectsWashburn's enthusiasm for the law and the history of hisstate. It was the starting point for several subsequentstudies. Washburn was a governor of Massachusetts, vice-president of the Massachusetts Historical Society, author ofdistinguished treatises on property and University Professorof Law at Harvard. Chafee, who heard accounts of Washburnfrom senior colleagues, wrote that "he was probably the mostbeloved instructor who ever taught at Harvard Law School"(x:500).Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
