About the Author:

Apart from James Kent, no man has had greater influence on the development of American law than Joseph Story [1779-1845]. He was Dane Professor of Law at Harvard, where he played a key role in the growth of the school and the establishment of its national eminence, and an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, where he was the author of several landmark decisions, such as Martin v. Hunter s Lessee. His many books have been cited extensively, and he remains an authority today.

Review:

No work on international jurisprudence merited, nor received, greater praise from the jurists of Europe. It impressed English lawyers with the highest respect for the extensive learning of Mr. Justice Story. --J.G. Marvin, Legal Bibliography (1847) 670-671

...[i]t is not too much to say that its publication constituted an epoch in the law; for it became at once the standard and almost the sole authority...[it also] received the honor of being practically the first American law book to be cited as authority in English courts. --Charles Warren, A History of the American Bar 545
