New. $95. * Reprint of the first American edition, from the second London edition, 1851, to which it is starred. First published in 1830, A Treatise of the Law of Waters is a comprehensive work notable for its clear explanation of several complex areas, such as the law of fisheries. It begins with a summary of various water rights, then proceeds to consider non-commercial rights in the seas and rivers, canals, docks, waterworks, fisheries and water mills. The final chapter addresses watercourses, which he defines as private rights of water. In all, Woolrych offers a superb overview of Anglo-American water law as it stood in the mid-nineteenth century. A prolific and learned scholar, Woolrych [1795-1871] wrote several treatises and biographies including Lives of Eminent Serjeants-at-Law, which is available as a Lawbook Exchange reprint.
