Law of England as expounded in Blackstone's Commentaries.
J. C. D.
NOTE.—The twenty-first English Edition of the Commentaries, in four volumes, was used in the preparation of this work. That edition, the last and best, has been reprinted, in this city, by Harper & Brothers.
It contains, in the course of very full and accurate notes, the alterations in the law, mostly by statute, since the time of Blackstone, so far as they affect the text of the Commentaries. For obvious reasons, very slight reference is made herein to those alterations. Our design related to the Common Law; not, at all, to English Statutory Enactments of the last eighty-eight years, which are of no authority here.
