EDITION OP TUB

DECISIONS

OF TUB

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES.

Now in Press, and will shortly be Published, the Decisions of the
Supreme Court of the United States, with Notes and a Digest, by
Hon. Benjamin R. Curtis, one of the Associate Justices of the
Court . In 18 volumes, octavo. Comprising the Cases reported
by Dallas, 4 vols.; Ckanch, 9 vols.; Wheaton, 12 vols.;
Peters, 16 vols.; Howard, 16 vols.; in all 57 volumes.

EXTRACT FROM THE PREFACE.

"This work contains the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United
States. The opinions of the Court are, in all cases, given as they have been
printed by the authorized reporters, after correcting such errors of the press
or of citation as a careful examination of the text has disclosed.

"I have endeavored to give, in the head-notes, the substance of each deci-
sion. They are designed to show the points decided by the Court, not the
dicta or reasonings of the Judges.

"The statements of the cases have been made as brief as possible. For
many years, it has been the habit of all the Judges of this Court to set forth
in their opinions the facts of the cases, as the Court viewed them in making
their decision. Such a statement, when complete, renders any other super-
fluous. When not found complete, I have not attempted to restate the whole
case, but have supplied, in the report, such facts or documents as seemed to
me to be wanting.

"In some cases, turning upon questions, or complicated states of fact, and not involving any matter of law, I have not thought it necessary to encumber the work with detailed statements of evidence which no one would find it useful to recur to. These instances, however, are few.

"To each case is appended a note referring to all subsequent decisions in which the case in the text has been mentioned. It will thus be easy to ascertain whether a decision has been overruled, doubted, qualified, explained, or affirmed; and to see what other applications have been made of the same or analogous principles.

"The paging of the authorized reporters has been preserved at the head of each case, and in the margin of each page, for convenience of reference; the reporters being designated by their initials, — D. for Dallas, C. for Cranch, W. for Wheaton, P. for Peters, II. for Howard.

"It is expected that all the decisions of the Court, down to the close of the December Term, 1854, will be embraced in eighteen volumes. To these will be added a Digest of all the decisions."

We ask attention to the following approval by the Members of the Supreme Court of the United States: —

"We approve the plan of Mr. Justice Curtis's ' Decisions of the Supremo Court of the United States,' and believe that its execution by him will be of much utility to the legal profession, and to our country."

John Mclean, Associate Justice. Samuel Nelson, Associate Justice.

James M. Wayne, Associate Justice. Robert C. Grier, Associate Justice.

John Catron, Associate Justice. J. A. Campbell, Associate Justice.
