[Hillhouse, William]:


Gray & Hewitt, New Haven: 1822 35pp, bound in modern plain wrappers. Margins and edges brittle, lightly foxed. Good+. A rare item, protesting judicial foreclosure proceedings on a piece of real estate in Litchfield County. "It may be in the power of Courts to discard every rule of evidence, and every principle of law. Deplorable, however, is that system of jurisprudence, which, through the agency of overbearing, and as the case may be, unprincipled talents, is liable to be stranded on the shoals of unyielding prepossession, or engulphed in the vortex of oppression and misrule." OCLC says that, "The publication of this pamphlet led to the suit of Dunning against Hillhouse for libel." American Imprints locates only the Yale copy; OCLC locates two copies at Yale and adds one at the Social Law Library in Massachusetts, as of April 2015. FIRST EDITION. AI 9011 [1]. OCLC 45569477 [3]. Not in Sabin, Harv. Law Cat., Marvin, Marke, Eberstadt, Cohen.
