Jacob, best-known for his New Law-Dictionary, was the most prolific English legal writer of the eighteenth century. Although he was interested in boosting sales by attracting the widest audience possible, Jacob was also an idealist who believed that widespread knowledge of the law would help create a more just society. This is the goal of Lex Mercatoria (1718) and several other publications, such as Every Man His Own Lawyer (1736) and Treatise of Laws (1721).
