First published in 1903 as little more than a pamphlet, these Outlines have been repeatedly revised and expanded until now, in the fifth edition, they present the fruit of fifty years’ study and forty-three years’ teaching of jurisprudence. The material of the fourth edition (1928) has been thoroughly revised and the systematic part has been wholly rewritten and much amplified. The bibliography has been made as complete as possible. In accordance with precedent, the Outlines deal only with private law, and take up each subject and topic from the analytical, historical, philosophical, and sociological standpoint. They present materials for developing the author’s views by full references to the writings in which they are expounded.
