Browne, Arthur. A Compendious View of the Civil Law and of the Law of the Admiralty: Being the Substance of a Course of Lectures Read in the University of Dublin. New York: Halstead and Voorhies, 1840. Two volumes. xvi, 536; xi, 567 pp. Reprinted 2000 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 99-18284. ISBN 1-886363-88-9. Cloth. $175. * In this two volume work Browne [1756?-1805] follows the order of treatment employed in Blackstone's Commentaries to examine the relationship between admiralty and civil law. Marvin describes it as "...deservedly popular, both on account of the learning, solidity, and accuracy of his research, and because it is the best book in the language showing the connexion between the Common and the Civil Law... It is often cited, and always with respect." Marvin, Legal Bibliography 155. Browne was Regius Professor of Civil and Canon Laws at the University of Dublin. See Cohen, BEAL 5382.
