This title marks the start of an effort by Hening and Munford to publish timely reports on the cases heard in Virginia's appellate courts. In the prospectus they circulated the previous July (1806.019), the pair offered their reports in either pamphlet-form "advance sheets" that covered sets of cases as they were prepared. or as completed bound volumes; this item is the first of those advance sheets; a second set was issued the ensuing February (1808.0xx), with the first bound volume issued in late 1808 from Philadelphia press of Smith & Maxwell (Swem 8194); this set covers cases heard from September 10 to November 19, 1806. 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 this title a second designation as Volume 11 of the Virginia Reports series. Eventually, Hening and Munford jointly published four volumes of reports by 1811 (Virginia Reports, vols. 11-14), with Munford issuing a further six from 1812 to 1826 (Virginia Reports, vols. 15-20).
