A Bibliographical Catalog of William Blackstone.

The Definitive Blackstone Bibliography Laeuchli, Ann Jordan. Cohen, Morris L., Foreword. Mooney, James E., Editor. A Bibliographical Catalog of William Blackstone. Getzville, NY: William S. Hein & Co., 2015. xvii, 537 pp. Hardcover. Near-fine. $175. * In 1938 Yale University Press published Catherine Spicer Eller's catalog of the Yale Law Library's William Blackstone Collection. This new catalog, built on Eller's work, covers both additions to that collection and other works by and about Blackstone printed in the Roman alphabet held by other libraries, American and foreign. The 672 entries in this catalogue are more than double the number in Eller. The entries include more detail. Laeuchli also adds two new categories to Eller's original nine-category arrangement. One on catalogs, commemorations, exhibitions and prospectuses and one on microtexts and electronic resources, three appendixes (a full description of Entry No. 1, the first edition, an excerpt from Eller's Introduction and a correlation of Eller and Laeuchli numbers), and three indexes (of authors, editors and translators, places, publishers and booksellers and dedications)."Ann Laeuchli has been working on her Blackstone bibliography for two decades. The finished product is a masterwork, without question joining Morris Cohen's Bibliography of Early American Law as the two finest works of legal bibliography in our time."--Fred Shapiro, Associate Library for Collections and Access and Lecturer in Legal Research, Yale Law School.
