Marvin praises its completeness: "It professes to be a complete Treatise upon Discovery; it comprises almost all the authorities upon the subject, with accurate investigations into many practical points. It is a work to which the practitioner may refer with every prospect of finding a perfect explanation of any difficulties which he may have encountered. Indeed, it has still higher merits. It is not merely practical, but in many parts extremely scientific. Later American editions were published in 1849 and 1850. Marvin, Legal Bibliography 368.
