A New Law Dictionary: Intended for General Use, as Well as for Gentlemen of the Profession
Burn, Richard. A New Law Dictionary, Intended for General Use, as Well as For Gentlemen of the Profession, and Continued to the Present Time by John Burn. London: Printed by A. Strahan and W. Woodfall, 1792. Two volumes. vii, 442; 446,  pp. Reprinted 2004 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. With a new introduction by Bryan A. Garner. ISBN 1-58477-356-1. Cloth. $250. * Intended to be a practical tool, Burn [1709-1785] eliminated several French definitions found in earlier dictionaries that were made obsolete by George II's 1733 decree that writs and pleadings were to be given in English. The elimination of these entries seems to have cleared space for other material and longer entries. Indeed, Burn's articles on such subjects as judgment, jury, purchase and will are broader, more detailed and better organized than they are in earlier dictionaries of this kind. It is unclear whether Burn intended to publish this book; it was edited, expanded and published posthumously by his son, John Burn [1744?-1802].
