Joel Fishman authors article: Third Circuit Court Reports (1789-1879)

The Fall 2016 issue of Law Library Journal includes an article by WPLLA Vice President Joel Fishman: Third Circuit Court Reports (1789-1879):

The history of court reporting of the federal lower judiciary dates from the early days of the Republic. Mr. Fishman helps to document that history by reviewing the publication of the reports for the Third Circuit (circuit and district courts) covering the nominative reports from the late-eighteenth to the late-nineteenth century, before their republication in Federal Cases by West Publishing Company. A bibliography is appended
