Originally published: Baltimore: Geo. Dobbin and Murphy, 1809. xxviii, iv, 211, [5] pp. Reprint of the first significant American treatise on admiralty law. An extended discussion of American admiralty practice and a useful compendium of relevant cases, Hall's treatise includes a history of Anglo-American admiralty law. First published posthumously in London in 1667 and translated into English in 1722, a valuable feature of this work is its translation of Francis Clerke's Praxis Curiae Admiralitatis Angliae, a work of "unquestionable credit" according to Lord Chancellor Hardwicke. Hall's 1809 translation, which is better than its predecessor, incorporated materials from manuscripts unavailable previously. In addition, he added a history of Anglo-American admiralty law, an extended discussion of American admiralty practice and a useful compendium of relevant cases.
