JUDICIAL TRIBUNALS OF THE SEVERAL STATES.

LIBRARY OF THE
Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1864, by
LITTLE, BROWN AND COMPANY,
LATE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY FOR THE DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS :
AN ABLE LAWYER,
THE PIONEER IN TAX TITLE LITIGATION IN ILLINOIS, AND WHO, BY HIS ADVICE
TO THIS EDITION.
The first edition of this work was published in the year eighteen hundred and fifty-five. The death of the learned author necessarily devolved the preparation of a new edition upon other hands ; but the subject was so thoroughly and exhaustively treated in the original production, as to leave but little more to be done, than to examine and incorporate the subsequent decisions. Over two hundred cases have been added, and several pages of new matter incorporated into the text and notes. It is generally distinguished from the original by being included in brackets.
The addition of the statutes of the several States upon the subject of Tax Titles, was found to be impracticable without nearly doubling the size and cost of the work; and therefore, only such portions of the several acts are quoted as have been made the subject of judicial decisions.
The references to the cases cited throughout the volume have been examined and verified, and many errors corrected therein.
