The son of Joseph Story, William Wetmore [1819-1895] wrote two textbooks that were standard works during the nineteenth century. This was one of them. First published in 1844, it went through five editions, the final appearing in 1874.

." . . the real source of his [Cooley's] fame. This book originated from the need of introducing a course on Constitutional Law in the school. . . . The text was developed as a basis for lectures. . . . His discussion attained immediate fame and his views and suggestions practically dominated American Constitutional Law. . . . Like Blackstone, Pomeroy and many other legal works, the influence of Constitutional Limitations rests partly upon literary qualities, upon clarity and grace of unaffected statement." --James G. Rogers, American Bar Leaders 70. "The most influential work ever published on American Constitutional law." --Edward S. Corwin, Constitutional Revolution 87. Thomas McIntyre Cooley [1824-1898] was a justice of the Michigan Supreme Court and was appointed by President Grover Cleveland to serve on the Interstate Commerce Commission. He was a visiting professor at Johns Hopkins University and dean of the University of Michigan Law School. First issued in 1870, his edition of Blackstone, popularly known as "Cooley's Blackstone," was the standard American edition of the late nineteenth century. Some of his other influential publications are A Treatise on the Law of Taxation (1876) and A Treatise on the Law of Torts or the Wrongs Which Arise Independently of Contract (1878). Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan, founded in 1972, was named in his honor.
Black, Henry Campbell. A Treatise on the Law of Income Taxation under Federal and State Laws. Kansas City: Vernon Law Book Co., 1913. xlii, 403 pp. Reprinted 2002 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN 1-58477-237-9. Cloth. $85. * In 1913, the Sixteenth Amendment, which authorized income taxation, was ratified by the required three-fourths majority of states. Black [1860-1927] published this work soon after this historic event in order to define the nature of taxable income, explain the history of income taxation and defend the government's right to impose it. He is guided throughout by a Progressive-Era belief in the federal government as an agent of social reform. Black is also the author of the well-known Law Dictionary.
