Éditeur : The University of North Carolina Press, United States

Date d'édition : 2013

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Edition : 1st New edition.

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Best known for his edition of Blackstone s Commentaries, St. George Tucker (1752-1827), a lawyer and judge in the state and federal courts of Virginia, played a central role in the legal history of post-Revolutionary Virginia and of the new nation. This comprehensive three-volume edition of Tucker s law reports and selected loose papers, edited by Charles F. Hobson, is an unsurpassed archive for studying the republicanization of the common law as it unfolded in the commonwealth of Virginia. In addition, Tucker s papers provide an invaluable source for tracking Virginia s efforts to establish a system of state superior courts operating alongside the older county court system dating from the colonial period. Tucker s reports fill a documentary gap caused by the 1865 fire that destroyed Virginia s higher court records. The editor s general introduction supplies an informative overview of Tucker s life and judicial career. Editorial aids and appendixes include a guide to Tucker s abbreviations, a short-title bibliography, a glossary of selected legal terms, a biographical register of the Virginia bench and bar, and correspondence and documents relating to the rupture between Tucker and Spencer Roane.

Synopsis : Best known for his edition of Blackstone's "Commentaries," St. George Tucker (1752-1827), a lawyer and judge in the state and federal courts of Virginia, played a central role in the legal history of post-Revolutionary Virginia and of the new nation. This comprehensive three-volume edition of Tucker's law reports and selected loose papers, edited by Charles F. Hobson, is an unsurpassed archive for studying the "republicanization" of the common law as it unfolded in the commonwealth of Virginia. In addition, Tucker's papers provide an invaluable source for tracking Virginia's efforts to establish a system of state superior courts operating alongside the older county court system dating from the colonial period. Tucker's reports fill a documentary gap caused by the 1865 fire that destroyed Virginia's higher court records. The editor's general introduction supplies an informative overview of Tucker's life and judicial career. Editorial aids and appendixes include a guide to Tucker's abbreviations, a short-title bibliography, a glossary of selected legal terms, a biographical register of the Virginia bench and bar, and correspondence and documents relating to the rupture between Tucker and Spencer Roane.

Critique: Hobson's skillfully edited volumes are required purchase for university libraries and will quickly become a common reference for scholars.--"Journal of American History"
