"Of this famous treatise, Justice Story stated that if Jones had never written anything else, 'he would have still left a name unrivalled in the common law for philosophical accuracy, learning, and finished analysis.'" Jenkins. Marvin, however, as Cohen points out, says the book "possesses very great merits as a literary production, but modest value as a legal work for the present day." FIRST AMERICAN EDITION.
