Benloe's Reports is often referred to as "old Benloe," and is usually found (as here) bound with Dalison's Reports. Indeed, this copy begins with an added general half-title listing both titles. Wallace refers to Benloe as an accurate reporter; while Dalison's reputation is reinforced by Coke's reference to him on at least three separate instances. Wallace, The Reporters 114-118.
