to have a law library that shall be comprehensive in the fullest
sense of the term. While the library is nearly complete in its
reports of the various courts of the United States, of Great
Britain and its colonies, it cannot be said in this respect to
differ from one or two other important law libraries in this
country. The collection of legal periodicals and reports of the
countries of continental Europe is undoubtedly the best in the
United States. In the last twenty years about forty thousand
volumes of foreign law--Roman, French, German, Italian, Spanish,

laws and reports of these countries, as well as all the important
treatises. The library possesses a very full collection of works on
Scotch law. In one respect the library is believed to be
exceptional, namely, in the completeness of the series of editions
of important legal treatises and also in the remarkable number of
early printed treatises. It is probable that such a collection
could not be found in any one library, except in the British
Museum. Much care has been taken to accomplish this result, which
is of special use to students, writers, and investigators, who
often find in an early or particular edition of a work matter of
especial interest and value, not to be found elsewhere. Another
collection of very great importance is that of trials, both civil
and criminal. Included in this collection may be mentioned the
Sessions papers, or the proceedings at the sessions of the Peace

December, 1729, to October, 1834, and the reports of the Central
Criminal Court from November, 1834, to the present time, covering a
