No copy known extant; publication evinced by advertisements in the Virginia Gazette of Augustine Davis in late February 1808; loss of copies means dates of cases are unrecorded. This title continues an effort by Hening and Munford to publish timely reports on the cases heard in Virginia's appellate courts. In the prospectus they circulated in July 1806 (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; the first of those advance sheets was issued in November 1807 (1807.022); this title constituted the second set of advance sheets; the first complete bound volume was issued in late 1808 from Philadelphia press of Smith & Maxwell (Swem 8194). 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).
