1800 pages; The first two annual volumes of 'The Criminal Law Magazine and Reporter' -- original editions from 1880 & 1881, bound in tan library buckram. xlii & 848; xl & 870 pp. Both have stamps from the Library of Congress, including the "Surplus-Duplicate" stamps from the LC's Division of Gift and Exchange (which make it legal to buy, sell and own these copies). But these two volumes have very different early histories. The first volume was bound up from the Copyright Deposit copies, as received and registered. The six original wrappers of the individual bi-monthly issues are bound in at the end; each bears the rubber stamp of Copyright Deposit, with numbers and (in most cases) date of receipt recorded. The original ads are also bound in, as well as the notice that subscribers could have their numbers bound up by returning them to the publisher (along with a fee), and also the wrappers which were issued with the index and general title page -- (this, too, is stamped for Copyright Deposit). The new Copyright Act of 1909 changed the terms of the law, and ended the requirement that the Library of Congress retain forever, the copyright deposit material accumulated to date. This first volume was deemed desirable to retain, and passed into the Library of Congress's "Law Department" and has another stamp on the title page to this effect. The second volume was originally the property of Stanford University Library, and has "STANFORD LIBRARY" perforated stamps on the title page, first page of main text, and pp. 101-2. On the verso of the title page is a stamp recording that it was received by the Library of Congress "In Exchange / Stanford Univ. / Aug 8 - 1933" It's binding is in the same style as volume I -- tan library "law" buckram, but this second volume is nearly an inch taller than the first. An interesting publication, the first of its kind in America, entirely devoted to criminal law. Each issue had substantial "leading articles" -- written by noted experts on a particular aspect of criminal law or practice. The issues also had full reports of select cases in the field, and a digest of all recent criminal cases brought in either American or English courts. Both these first volumes have a series of substantial and important articles about the legal aspects of insanity, and the evolving insanity defense -- written by John Ordronaux (1830 - January 20, 1908). Ordronaux's training and education gave him unique qualifications for this subject. He graduated from Dartmouth College in 1850, from Harvard Law School in 1852, and from the National Medical School in 1859. In 1860 Ordronaux became a Professor of medical jurisprudence at Columbia Law School, a post that he held until 1887. Since 1861 he had also been a lecturer at Dartmouth College, The University of Vermont and Boston University. This busy man was also a U.S. Army surgeon during the Civil War. Ordronaux developed an abiding interest in mental health and between 1872 and 1882 he was a member of the New York State Commission in Lunacy. He wrote two books on the subject, as well as the leading articles published here in these first two volumes of "The Criminal Law Magazine." Professor Dr. Ordronaux makes a strong case for the importance of his field: "Insanity is a subject which touches our civil rights at so many different points, that it may be said to have a place in every problem involving human responsibility." His first article leads the new publication, on its first page of main text: "The plea of insanity as an answer to an indictment." The editors, Stewart Rapalje and Robert Linn Lawrence, also collaborated on: an important 1888 publication (which is still useful) -- 'A Dictionary of American and English law: with definitions of the technical terms of the canon and civil laws. Also, containing a full collection of Latin Maxims, and citations of upwards of forty thousand reported cases in which words and phrases have been judicially defined or construed. (1888). Two.
