Description: 620 pgs.; 22 cm. (8vo).


The fifth of six volumes of case reports compiled by Munford on his own, after publishing four volumes of such reports in conjunction with William Waller Hening; this volume covers cases heard from February Term 1814 through April Term 1817. All eight of those volumes were published beyond Virginia, in either Philadelphia or New York, making this title the first volume of case reports issued in the state since publication in 1805 of the third volume of Daniel Call's reports (1805.024). Yet this volume too was printed elsewhere, despite the Fredericksburg imprint of William Fairfax Gray on the title page; verso of that page bears notice of the copyright entered by Gray on August 28, 1819, apparently his compensation from Munford for having this volume published; that notice is followed by the colophon of the Boston printing firm of William Wells and Robert Lilly, who apparently delivered this volume in sheets to Gray in Fredericksburg, making this a Virginia imprint. In November 1911, the Virginia Supreme Court ordered a chronological numbering of the 75 such reporter-named reports that had been published in the state until then, so giving these title a second designation as volume 19 of the Virginia Reports series.
