It contains translations of nearly five-thousand items of foreign origin and supplies definitions for innumerable maxims of law found in both English and American sources. The author has paid great attention to the context of legal terms and supplies extensive notes, with citations, after each section of his glossary (i.e., after "A", "B", "C", etc.). This glossary is an important research tool that will aid greatly in elucidating both the source and meaning of legal concepts of the last century.
