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, such as advice on legal study and 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. Laeuchli, A Bibliographical Catalog of William Blackstone 269.
