Blackstone, Sir William [1723-1780]. [Cooley, Thomas M., Editor]. Commentaries on the Laws of England; In Four Books. With A Copious Analysis of the Contents. And Notes with References to English and American Decisions and Statutes to Date Which Illustrate or Change the Law of the Text; Also, a Full Table of Abbreviations, and Some Considerations Regarding the Study of the Law. Chicago: Callaghan and Company, 1884. Four books in two volumes. cxv, 644; xxvii, 629 pp. (Blackstone's paging retained in margin.) Portrait frontispiece. Two tables, one folding. Reprinted 2003 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 2003053970. ISBN 1-58477-361-8. Cloth. $250. * Reprint of the third edition, revised. This edition is notable in part because it omits the notes of English editors found in Cooley's earlier editions and adds a good deal of new commentary by Cooley, most of it dealing with American statutes and decisions. It also has several new sections. These are a review of the recent progress in law and essays on local government in Great Britain, the British colonial system and local government in the United States and its territories. Cooley [1824-1898] was one of the most prominent American jurists of the nineteenth century and an authority on Constitutional law. First issued in 1870, "Cooley's Blackstone" was the standard American edition of the late nineteenth century.

Sir William Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-1769) stands as the first great effort to reduce the English common law to a unified and rational system. Blackstone demonstrated that the English law as a system of justice was comparable to Roman law and the civil law of the Continent. Clearly and elegantly written, the work achieved immediate renown and exerted a powerful influence on legal education in England and in America which was to last into the late nineteenth century. The book is regarded not only as a legal classic but as a literary masterpiece. Previously available only in an expensive hardcover set, Commentaries on the Laws of England is published here in four separate volumes, each one affordably priced in a paperback edition. These works are facsimiles of the eighteenth-century first edition and are undistorted by later interpolations. Each volume deals with a particular field of law and carries with it an introduction by a leading contemporary scholar. Introducing this second volume, Of the Rights of Things, A. W. Brian Simpson discusses the history of Blackstone's theory of various aspects of property rights—real property, feudalism, estates, titles, personal property, and contracts—and the work of his predecessors.
