Albert Kocourek characterized this work as "the most successful of all jurisprudence books." Holland [1835-1926] taught philosophy at Oxford before he was called to the Bar in 1863. After several years in practice he was appointed Vinerian Reader in English Law and Chichele Professor of International Law and Diplomacy in 1874. An industrious scholar, he published several important treatises and was a founder of the Law Quarterly Review. Walker, Oxford Companion to Law 576.
