This classic guide to legal study and practice was first issued in England in 1835 and in the United States the following year. Not content to limit himself to practical advice, Warren [1807-1877] adds a primer on legal ethics (and a sampling of encouraging maxims). Clerk's additions include a fascinating six-page supplement to the chapter on special pleading that attacks the New York State reforms proposed by David Dudley Field. He also includes an outline of the recently reorganized Harvard Law School Curriculum. "It stands at the head of all works of its class for amount and variety of information, felicity of illustration, and a spirit-stirring and sparkling style": Marvin, Legal Bibliography (1847) 719.
