This was the first work to appear after the 1854 legislation which introduced several important legal reforms, some of which affected arbitration and award. Renowned for his lucid prose, Archbold was a distinguished and prolific author on several legal topics. Highly regarded, Marvin expressed a common opinion when he wrote that "Mr. Archbold has no superior as a writer of practical works, whether we regard their number or utility, and but one equal, Mr. Chitty."
