In this 1912 edition of his 1911 history, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Charles Warren sets out a historical sketch of law and lawyers in America from the Revolutionary War until 1860. Warren also includes an overview of the state of the law in England in the 17th and 18th centuries by way of background, and a chapter especially devoted to the effect of the railway on the development of American law in the Victorian era. This book will be useful to legal historians both British and American, and to anyone with an interest in the foundations of American legal institutions.
