This fascinating catalogue lists every law title published or distributed by Little, Brown. Several entries have endorsements and annotations. (Some of these, by Joseph Story and other distinguished jurists, are unique to this catalogue.) Another interesting feature is a section by Simon Greenleaf entitled "Catalogue of a Select Law Library" that lists "the Books which are useful to every American Lawyer, in whatever State he may reside" (xxx-xl). Based on the Harvard Law School reading list, the titles are arranged by subject in parallel columns. Essential titles are in listed in one column, useful, but supplemental, titles in the other. It also includes an advertisement for Harvard Law School that describes its philosophy, curriculum and fees.

Legal Publishing in Antebellum America presents a history of the law book publishing and distribution industry in the United States. Part business history, part legal history, part history of information diffusion, M. H. Hoeflich shows how various developments in printing and bookbinding, the introduction of railroads, and the expansion of mail service contributed to the growth of the industry from an essentially local industry to a national industry. Furthermore, the book ties the spread of a particular approach to law, that is, the 'scientific approach', championed by Northeastern American jurists to the growth of law publishing and law book selling and shows that the two were critically intertwined.
