This treatise was written during the period in which Story [1779-1845] was an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court and Professor of Law at Harvard Law School. In his Legal Bibliography (1847), Marvin praised the thoroughness of this treatise, noting that "[Story] has everywhere illustrated the doctrines of common law, by copious extracts from distinguished writers on Roman and Continental law" (672). And in The Formative Era in American Law, Pound includes this title in a list of the most influential and authoritative American treatises written during the nineteenth century (140-141).
