About this Item

ISBN-13: 9781584777632; ISBN-10:158477763X. Interesting Scholarly Edition of Blackstone Blackstone, Sir William [1723-1780]. Lewis, William Draper, Editor. Commentaries on the Laws of England in Four Books, With Notes Selected from the Editions of Archibold, Christian, Cole, Ridge, Chitty, Stewart, Kerr, And Others; And in Addition Notes and References To All Text Books and Decisions Wherein the Commentaries Have Cited and All the Statutes Modifying the Text. Originally published: Philadelphia: Geo. T. Bisel Co., 1922. 4 Vols. xxx, star-paged 485, 532, 428, 649 pp. Reprinted 2007, 2011 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584777632; ISBN-10: 158477763X. Hardcover. New. $150. * Reprint of the final reissue of Lewis's edition, first published in 1897. It contains the text of the 1778 Oxford edition, the last edited by Blacktone, but omits the appendices to Books 3 and 4. "The material used in the preparation of this edition may be divided into four classes. First, [modern research] into the history of our law, such as the works of Maine, of Pollock and Maitland, and of Vinogradoff. Second, the statutes in England and the United States which modify the statements in the text. Third, the notes of my predecessors. Fourth, the cases decided and the text-books published since Blackstone's day which have referred to him as an authority. (.) The fourth class of material is, in my judgment, by far the most important. All reports and text-books published since Blackstone's day were carefully searched for references to his work.": Preface iii. Laeuchli, A Bibliographical Catalog of William Blackstone 270.
