A Law Dictionary, adapted to the Constitution and Laws of the

United States of America, and of the several states of the Ameri

can union; with references to the civil and other systems of foreign law. By John Bouvier.

This work, the fruit of o: of seven years' labor, will contain all the terms of art in the common law, used either in the United States or England; those peculiar to the civil, canon, or ecclesiastical law; those among the French, Scotch, German, Spanish and other foreign systems, within reach of the author, which may be useful to professional gentlemen, or to men of business; those relating to commerce and manufactures, as connected with law; those used in medical jurisprudence, international law, and the law of nature. All terms of art, technical and peculiar expressions, to be found in the constitution and laws of the United States, and of the several states, relating to the executive, legislative or judiciary departments, and all their various branches, and those relating to the rights and duties of citizens, will be severally explained and considered. In the execution of the plan, the author has, in the first place, defined and explained the various words and phrases, by giving their most enlarged meaning, and then all the different shades of signification of which they are susceptible; secondly, he has divided the subject in the manner, which to him, apared the most natural, and laid down such principles and rules of law as to. to it; in these cases he has been careful to give an illustration, by citing a case wherever the subject seemed to require it, and referred to other cases supporting the same point; thirdly, whenever the article admitted of it, he has compared it with the laws of other countries, and pointed out their concord or disagreement; and fourthly, he has referred to the authorities, and the abridgments, digests, and ancient and modern treatises, where the subject is to be found, in order to facilitate the researches of the student. Every word and subject to be found in English Law Dictionaries, which can by any possibility be useful, has been retained; those which are not strictly applicable to the United States, have been condensed, as have been all those which belong exclusively to some foreign system of law. About two thousand new articles will be found in the work, which are not in any dictionary extant, and those subjects which have been treated of in other dictionaries, have been written anew, without any regard to the form or matter which may be found in such works. It is presumed the work will contain one thousand pages of close printing, or perhaps make two handsome octavo volumes, containing six to eight hundred pages each.

Hilliard, Gray & Co. have in press,

w its origin clearly.]
