1796.027: Case Upon the Statute for Distribution.

Published: 1796

Full Title: Case Upon the Statute for Distribution.

Author: Wythe, George (1726-1806), reporter.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Thomas Nicolson

Description: 40 pgs.; 19 cm. (8vo).


Not a formal case report, but a discussion of English legal precedents and their effect on Virginia's laws on intestate estates, widow's rights, and orphan estates. One of a series of law reports published by Wythe in a form designed to be bound in volumes of collected decisions, so avoiding the expense of larger works, such as his earlier volume of High Court of Chancery decisions (1795.014); this imprint was one that included a title page, unlike others which leaves determinations of authorial and printer credits to external sources; Evans attributed those unidentified titles to George Wythe and Thomas Nicolson, based on their ongoing association, and other authorities followed suit – as does this Index.
