Covering the years 1738-1740, this set of reports was, to quote Wallace, "very much esteemed by the profession in general." Marvin notes that "Andrews has usually given a fuller and more satisfactory report of these cases than is found in reports of the same period." Later editions were published in 1791 and 1792.
