An Enquiry Into the Law Merchant of the United States, Or, Lex Mercatoria Americana, on Several Heads of Commercial Importance
The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd., 2006 - 648 strani
Reprint of the sole edition. With an appendix of forms. As Horwitz points out in The Transformation of American Law, this is the first American treatise on commercial law (150). Surrency's History of American Law Publishing notes that it was also the first to deal with admiralty law (441). It focused on shipping and maritime commerce, with substantial sections on insurance and bankruptcy. Reflecting the tension that existed between arbitrators and courts of law, Caines insisted that "in what appertains to trade, let it be constantly remembered, that custom alone is law" (220). Caines [1771-1825] was the official reporter of the New York Supreme Court.
