1810-40, Montriou's Bengal Hindu Law Cases
Cases on Hindu Law before H.M. Supreme Court during the first thirty years of its establishment; In continuation of the 2nd ed. of Morton’s Reports:
by B.A. Montriou, two volumes in one, Calcutta, D’Rozario & Co., 1853 & 1861 (The title of the 1861 volume varies slightly, substituting the words
“from A.D. 1810 to 1840 inclusive” for the phrase “during the first thirty years of the court’s establishment” in the 1853 volume. This work has a
curious publishing history. Montriou’s original texts served as supplementary pages for a second edition of T.C. Morton’s Decisions of the Supreme Court of
Judicature at Fort William…, {1ed, 1841, 2ed 1851}. Montriou’s supplement consisted of two installments, pp. 271-431 and pp. 432-639; each with a
separate title page, respectively carrying the publication dates 1853 & 1861. Each separate title page announces that its following pages constitute a
“continuation of the second edition of Decisions of the Supreme Court, &c., by T.C. Morton.” In the present issuance the two Montriou segments appear as
a standalone work. However, apparently the same plates were used as in the original work, and thus the pagination of the present two volumes is as
follows: tp+vi+271-431 and tp+vi+432-639. There is no indication that the actual texts have been changed in any way since their original use as
supplements to Morton’s “Second Edition.”)
Title:   Before H.M. Supreme Court ... in continuation of the second edition of Decisions of the Supreme Court, &c., by T.C. Morton / by W.A. Montriou.
