1790-1854, Curtis' Condensed Supreme Court Rpts., 1ed, 21v
Reports of decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States; With notes, and a digest: by B.R. (Benjamin Robbins) Curtis, Vol. 1-21, Boston,
Little, Brown, 1855-56, all publ. (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 offers only a few
volumes of this first edition of Curtis. Copies of the gap items are earnestly solicited for scanning purposes.)
