Reprint of the uncommon third and final edition. This bookgrew out of an article in the Encyclopedia Brittanica. An"instant classic", it soon became a fixture on reading listsand bibliographies. According to the Law Quarterly Review,"no one who has read the book can have felt any doubt thatthe author had mastered his authorities, or that he had asingularly wide and profound knowledge of the continentalliterature dealing with the subject" (15:198). The secondand third editions were equally well-received. The third isthe best edition because it contains the equally valuablenotes of Goudy and Grant.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S. Hein & Co., Inc.
