NEW SUBSCRIPTION EDITION.

130 volumes in 65, $130.00.

Of this new edition only a few sets now remain for sale. The volumes are printed in the best manner from the publishers' stereotype plates, each volume containing two volumes of the original Reports.

The volumes are bound in the usual style, with double labels, giving the Reporter's name and the number of his volume, as well as the title under which the volume is cited in the complete series of Massachusetts Reports.

The Massachusetts Reports bave always held the highest rank. They have been constantly cited by the Supreme Court of the United States, and by the courts of last resort in the different States. They have also been referred to by the judges in England, not as authority, but, in the language of Baron Bramwell, as “entitled to respect as the opinions of professors of English law, and entitled to respect according to the position of those professors and the reasons they give for their opinions.”

In a case in the House of Lords, the Lord Chancellor (Lord Chelmsford) observed: “I am fortified in this opinion by the case determined in the court at Massachusetts, because the judges in America are in the habit of investigating general principles most closely, and applying them with great accuracy to the cases brought before them, so as to make them of general use and application.”

A well-known law-writer thus speaks of these Reports: “ Among the multiplicity of Reports of the present day the Massachusetts Reports merit especial notice and will well repay a critical examination. They contain the decisions of a high judicial tribunal of the various questions which spring up in everyday life from the conduct and dealings of a large, intelligent, enterprising, commercial, manufacturing, and agricultural community. They define the limits of legal right and legal liability. They contain accounts of prosperous enterprise, of ruinous adventure, of domestic feuds, and of the miseries of crime. They present the people, the bar, and the bench as they think and speak and act in the drama of life. To all who are engaged in the administration, practice, or study of the law they are of especial value.”

A DIGEST OF THE REPORTED DECISIONS of the Supreme

Judicial Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, from 1804 to 1879, with references to Earlier Cases. By Edmund H. BENNETT, RUSSELL GRAY, and HENRY W. Swift.

This Digest contains 3,214 pages, and includes all the decisions embraced in one hundred and twentyseven volumes of Massachusetts Reports; decisions of the Supreme Courts of the United States, affirming, reversing. or overruling the decisions of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts in cases arising under the Constitution and laws of the United States ; also, the statutes on which decisions are founded have been indicated, and references have been very generally inserted to such others as have confirmed, reversed, or modified previous decisions of the court, or have repealed or altered statutes which had been the subject of judicial interpretation.

the Cases embraced in the last seven volumes, 128-134. Royal 8vo. Law sheep, $2.00 net. Leatherette, $1.50 net.

SECOND EDITION, WITH SUPPLEMENT, bringing the Cases down to the end of the one hundred and thirty-second volume. TABLES OF CASES OVERRULED, DENIED, DOUBTED, CRITICISED,

APPROVED, AND CITED BY THE SUPREME JUDICIAL COURT. Also, a List of Legal
Maxims and Errors in Citation found in the Massachusetts Reports. By Geo. FRED. WILLIAMS. One

volume. Royal 8vo. Law sheep. $6.00 net. SUPPLEMENT to the above, bringing the Cases down to the end of Vol. 132.

Royal 8vo. Law sheep. $2.00 net.

The purpose of this book is to point out wherever a decided case has been commented upon by the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts; bow cases in the Massachusetts Reports have been qualitied or approved in subsequent opinions; what weight has been given to the adjudications of other courts, and especially what common-law cases have been a lopted or rejected in this Commonwealth.

“Mr. Williams has given us AN INDEX TO EVERY CASE, WHETHER ENGLISH OR AMERICAN, which has been cited by the judges of the Supreme Court of Massachusetts in the first one hundred and twenty-one volumes of their decisions. That is an enormous boon. If one would know what our court has had to say about the law of Dumpor's Case, or Chandelor v. Lopus, or Gibbons v. Ogden, or Higham v. Ridgway, he has but to turn to this single compact volume and there are his references at a glance. I have used the book constantly from the beginning and have never found an error in it. There is no book in my library that is so useful. ... I am sure that no lawyer in Massachusetts can afford to be without it. And I should suppose, in view of the important rank which the Massachusetts Reports hold throughout the country, that this complete and accurate index TO ALL CASES, foreign or domestic, that have been cited in Massachusetts, would be widely used in other States.” Letter from J. B. Thayer, Professor Harrard University.
