About This Item

2008. Abbott, Benjamin Vaughan. Dictionary of Terms and Phrases Used in American or English Jurisprudence. Originally published: Boston: Little, Brown, and Company, 1879. 2 Vols. xliii, 680; ii, 738 pp. Reprinted 2008 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584779261; ISBN-10: 1584779268. Upper red and lower black gilt lettered spine labels, cloth bound, smyth-sewn hardcover. New. $350. * Reprint of the only edition. Although it did not pass though subsequent editions, this dictionary has been quite influential. It was one of the sources used by Black when he compiled his dictionary. An online search shows that it is often cited today. Abbott [1830-1890] was the secretary of the New York Code Commission and the principal author of the state's penal code, which was completed in 1864. He also served on a commission created to revise the statutes of the United States from 1870 to 1872.
