This book, having passed through several editions, was succeeded by a similar work, entitled “A Digest of the Law of Actions and Trials at Nisi Prius," by Mr. Espinasse, of which there have been four editions.

Under this impression, the Abridgment of the Law of Nisi Prius was prepared and published in three parts successively, in the years 1806, 1807, 1808.
