This volume is a full reprint, from Mr. Fisher's Common Law Digest, of the titles Criminal Law and Criminal Information, and will be found a complete compendium of the English Law of Crimes and Punishments, upon which our American Criminal Law is founded.
Some of the cases being based upon statutory provisions, it was deemed wise to include the digests of statutory enactmeuts which precede the notes of cases in Mr. Fisher's work and in this volume.
The later decisions, from the tenth and eleventh volumes of Cox Criminal Cases, have been added under their appropriate heads. Each note has been compared with the original volumes of reports, and the citations have been corrected and verified.
To prosecuting officers of the State and Federal Governments, and to lawyers who make a specialty of Criminal Law, this volume will need no other recommendations than the names of its compilers, Messrs. Harrison and Fisher, and the price at which it is offered.
