Excerpt from An Historical View of the Law of Maritime Commerce
With the exception Of the compilation of the mari time usages generally prevalent during the middle ages, M. Pardessus has, in his Collection, limited himself to the exhibition of authentic copies Of what may be called the statutes, or legislative enactments, Of the different. States which have cultivated navigation and commerce. And, as the Collection thus omits that large portion Of the law of maritime commerce, which, although not di gested in compilations expressly sanctioned by sove reign authority, has come, in most countries, to be firmly' established as common law, by usage and judicial de termination, the author has not only continued, as in his original sketch, but amplified his notices Of the records Of such judicial determinations, and Of the works Of the individual authors by whom they have been collected and arranged.
