"The best book on [awards] was published by Stewart Kyd in 1791. It is a learned book, which describes historically the growth of the rules on this topic from the Year Books downwards, and discusses intelligently the modern cases both legal and equitable. The author knows a good deal of Roman law, and makes an effective use of some of its rules, which, he thinks, may have influenced the growth of the parallel English Rules.": Holdsworth, History of English Law XII:399.
