principles of law which affect all society and the relations of men
to each other under all forms of government and are incorpor-
ated into the law of a particular form of government with such
modifications only as make them adapted to it. These principles
as modified by the system of government in this country form
American elementary law. After a clear and succinct statement
of the principles of law entering therein the author develops the
scheme of government, and the legal fabric is built up. So also
are the principles affecting the private relations of individuals
first stated, and the rules of conduct and property are then deduced.
Whatever may be said of other works on elementary law, Judge
Townes has written a book that sets forth in good English and
clear style and in a philosophical and logical manner the living
first principles of the law so that the student may easily grasp
them without becoming entangled in the perplexities of obsolete fic-
tions. The work is well adapted to the use of the law student
as well as of those who desire a knowledge of the legal principles
upon which the government of this country is established and con-
ducted and which control the affairs of its inhabitants.
