Scott, Austin W. (Reporter). Seavey, Warren A. (Reporter). American Law Institute. Restatement of the Law of Judgments. [1st]. St. Paul: American Law Institute Publishers, 1942. xiv, 688 pp. Gilt-lettered textured maroon cloth. Ex-private law firm library with card pocket on inside rear free endpaper, else very good and internally clean. $45. * First edition. Now in its third edition, the Restatements series was produced by the American Law Institute to define the consensus of American courts on particular points of law. Written by a team of respected legal scholars, they provided clear statements of legal principles as they stood at the time of publication. In this respect these volumes remain valuable as landmarks in the evolution of American law during the twentieth century. The publisher recommends that this volume be retained, as it contains material of historical interest and numerous case citations depict still-valid underlying authority for concepts newly articulated in later Restatement units.
