A System of the Law of Marine Insurances, with Three Chapters on Bottomry, on Insurances on Lives, and on Insurances Against Fire
Reprint of the second American edition, based on the third London edition, 1797, to which it is starred. First published in 1787, Park's Marine Insurances was the first English treatise on the subject and, according to Holdsworth, "the best." It went through numerous editions, both in England and America and remained the standard text until the mid-nineteenth century. It begins with a history of insurance in the maritime states of Europe. The following chapters explain average, salvage, abandonment and how insurance policies are constructed. The final sections address liability and topics dealing with procedure and evidence. Cases and authorities are discussed at length, underlying principles are given as well. Holdsworth, A History of English Law VIII:263.
