1790-1854, Curtis' Condensed Supreme Court Rpts., 6ed, 22v
Reports of decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States; With notes, and a digest; 6th ed., rev. with references to the latest decisions: by
B.R. (Benjamin Robbins) Curtis, Vol. 1-22, Boston, Little, Brown, 1881 (c.1855), all published. (Curtis (1809-1874) was an associate justice of the
Supreme Court. His abbreviated version of the official U.S. Reports series was intended to fill a need for a cheaper source of these important legal
documents. Curtis achieved his economies by editing out much interesting, but essentially extraneous, matter such as notes of the arguments of counsel and
the much fuller statements of the cases that were habitually included by the earlier reporters. Curtis’ work condensed the U.S. Reports from
1790-1854, Vols. 2-58 U.S. His work was continued by Mr. Justice Samuel Miller, who condensed U.S. Vols. 59-67 U.S., 1855-1862, into 4 volumes. The Miller
title is also offered on this site. Currently LLMC lacks several volumes of this 6th ed. of Miller. edition. Copies of the gap items are earnestly
solicited for scanning purposes.)
