"By sticking closely to the subject in hand, Mr. Gould has avoided a pitfall into which many writers on special topics fall: namely, of swamping the valuable and special part of the work in a sea of allied topics, often carelessly and inadequately treated ... In the main, the work has that accuracy, clearness, and fulness of citations so necessary in a special treatise." E.S.T., Harvard Law Review 14: 471-472. The second edition is enhanced by the inclusion of over 3700 cases not referred to in the first edition. Catalogue of the Library of the Law School of Harvard University (1909) I:776.
