About This Item

2011. ISBN-13: 9781886363342; ISBN-10: 188636334X. [Field Codes]. The Code of Civil Procedure of the State of New-York, Reported Complete by the Commissioners on Practice and Pleadings. 1850. Originally published: Albany: Weed, Parsons & Co., 1850. [ii], x (i-x new introduction), xcvi, 791 pp. With a new General Introduction to the Series by Michael Weber. Reprinted 1998, 2011 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781886363342; ISBN-10: 188636334X. Hardcover. New. $65. * Volume I of the New York Field Codes Series. These five volumes contain the complete texts of the law codes drafted for New York State by David Dudley Field and his colleagues during the years 1847 to 1865.

A graduate of Williams College, he settled in New York City, where he studied law, was admitted to the bar and rapidly won a high position in his profession. Originally a Free-Soil Democrat, he played an important role in the establishment of the Republican Party in New York and supported the Lincoln administration throughout the Civil War. He returned to the Democratic Party i.
