"By any standard, [this work] is monumental in scope, size, and pioneering importance. The range of Chitty's conception encompasses what today would be called public and private international law and comparative law. With an understandable emphasis upon British legislation, the work first addresses rules of customary international law and treaties and legislative materials which affect foreign and domestic commerce. The second portion of the work considers legislation primarily but treaties too which affect private transactions between merchants and/or individuals." --William E. Butler, v Also the founder of a distinguished family of jurists, Joseph Chitty [1775-1841] wrote several treatises on a remarkably diverse range of subjects that influenced generations of law students and lawyers in England and North America.
