The high reputation enjoyed by its editor, and its manifest improvement on the Digest upon which it was founded, at once commanded for it the approval of the English legal profession. The peculiarities, however, (...) in the classification of its subjects (...) were fatal to its circulation and usefulness in this country. The object in presenting this work to the profession, is to reproduce the decisions digested by Fisher and Harrison, under improved arrangements of each of the subjects, in a form adapted to the wants and uses of the American practitioner.": Preface.
