A Catalogue of Law Books, published and for sale by Charles C. Little & James Brown, College Buildings, No. 112 Washington Street. Boston. 1837. 18mo. pp. 70.

The neat appearance of this catalogue, and the exact and expressive wood-cut of Chief Justice Marshall which adorns its title-page, seem to give it a title to notice, to which few productions of a similar character can lay claim. This is something more than a mere bookseller's advertising sheet; it is valuable as a bibliographical guide in the purchase of law books. The title-pages of the different works, including the date and place of publication, are given at length; and, in some cases, short notices of the work are appended. Prefixed to the whole is an accurate analytical list of American Reports, arranged according to their different courts and States.
