New. $19.95 * Reprint of the first significant American treatise on admiralty law. An extended discussion of American admiralty practice and a useful compendium of relevant cases, Hall's treatise includes a history of Anglo-American admiralty law. First published posthumously in London in 1667 and translated into English in 1722, a valuable feature of this work is its translation of Francis Clerke's Praxis Curiae Admiralitatis Angliae, a work of "unquestionable credit" according to Lord Chancellor Hardwicke. Hall's 1809 translation, which is better than its predecessor, incorporated materials from manuscripts unavailable previously. In addition, he added a history of Anglo-American admiralty law, an extended discussion of American admiralty practice and a useful compendium of relevant cases. Hall [1783-1829] was editor of The American Law Journal from 1808-1817.
