A Treatise on the Measure of Damages: Or an Inquiry Into the Principles Which Govern the Amount of Pecuniary Compensation Awarded by Courts of Justice
This monumental work sets forth two major treatments of the subject. Four volumes and nearly 3,000 pages thoroughly present an interesting and careful historical examination and comparison with civil law principles, and discuss reasons for existing rules suggested by history or analogy or laid down in some 30,000 cases up to 1912. The varied aspects of compensation and damages are covered, as well as related topics such as the measure and elements of value, expenses of litigation, medium of payment, and interest.
