Endlich, G[ustav] A[dolf]. A Commentary on the Interpretation of Statutes. Founded on the Treatise of Sir Peter Benson Maxwell. Originally published: Jersey City: Frederick D. Linn & Company, 1888. lxviii, 871 pp. Reprinted 2006 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584775980; ISBN-10: 158477598X. Hardcover. New. $39.95 * Reprint of the first American edition. While working as the American editor of Maxwell's On the Interpretation of Statutes (1875) Endlich uncovered numerous discrepancies between English and American practice. Transforming the work to focus more carefully on American law, Endlich was instrumental in exposing the varieties of judicial interpretation. Notable for an exhaustive discussion of the permutations courts must adopt to reconcile the practical realities of cases with the static letter of the law, the work remains invaluable as a catholicon for those who insist on the imposition of a single standard.
