Nineteenth-Century Legal Treatises


Nineteenth-Century Legal Treatises on microfiche contains works on the subject of law printed in the United States and the United Kingdom during the nineteenth century. The scope of this collection allows the researcher to trace the evolution of modern law in the United Kingdom and the United States. Works by many prolific and influential writers such as Bentham, Austin, Maine, Kent, Archbold, and Holmes are included. Casebooks, local practice manuals, books of legal form, pamphlets, letters, speeches, memoirs, and diaries have been selected and included for their relevance to legal theory and history.

This film, employing a silver halide emulsion, meets all industry standards for archival permanence. The microfiche heading has been designed to industry standards. The eye-legible, abbreviated title of each work is centered on the top line of the Document Description Area, with the author and imprint date appearing directly beneath. The information contained in the right-hand field of the heading, the Sequential Information Area, offers identification unique to the work: the sequential fiche number for the entire collection, the number of fiche cards corresponding to that title, sequential card number for the title, and the range of pages filmed on the card.
