Federal Statutes, Annotated
Second Edition
BOOK REVIEW
Reprinted from the CENTRAL LAW JOURNAL.
The growth in the Federal statute law in the past ten years has
exceeded that of the preceding twenty years not only in volume but in
importance. It used to be said that the general practitioner did not
need to know much about Federal law or Federal procedure, since he
would have little occasion to make use of his knowledge in the course
of his practice.
Today, hardly any lawyer, worthy of the name, can be said to be
prepared to practice without a working knowledge of these two subjects.
Fortunately, however, -there have been many praiseworthy efforts to
bring together and make accessible for the busy lawyer the statute law
of the United States.
One of the best of these compilations, if not the best, is known as
Federal Statutes Annotated, Second Edition. .... The annotations to
this new edition of the Federal Statutes will delight any busy lawyer.
They were made under the direction of Mr. Win. M. McKinney, one of
the greatest law editors this country ever produced.
The notes stand out clear from the text, and the statutes themselves
are split up into sections and parts of sections with black letter catch
headings, which enables the lawyer not only to get at the very point in
a section or statute in which he is interested, but also to get at the
proper construction of that part of the section without wading through
a lot of matter in which he is not interested.
The mechanical execution of the work is above criticism. The thin
paper, the sharp difference between text and notes, the multitude of
black catch lines, the convenience in size and weight of each volume,
make the set all that could be desired.
In fifteen volumes, including Supplements, this work is complete to
January i, i92, both as to laws and annotations. Price only $7.50 per
volume delivered.
