"[The] author has given a comprehensive, thorough, and extremely scholarly treatment to the entire field of Mexican law. Approaching his coverage first with a historical survey, Pallares discusses the heritage of Mexican legal thought from the mother country, the evolution of national institutions and law from the commencement of independent life, and then follows up in great detail on the codified and statutory fields in separate chapters. Doctrinal discussion of subjects of legal philosophy and jurisprudence has enhanced the academic nature of this work as a reference source." A second edition was published in 1904. OCLC locates 9 copies of the first edition and 6 of the second in North American law Libraries. Clagett and Valderrama, A Revised Legal Guide to the Law & Legal Literature of Mexico 372.
