"Mr. Schouler has peculiar gifts and experience for the treatment of this subject. (...) [It] is a very technical and difficult one, on account of its diverse statutory regulations, but Mr. Schouler has managed it with admirable discretion and discrimination. The work is entitled to rank with those of Williams, Willard, and Redfield, and has the advantage of being the latest. It is a model at once of comprehensiveness and of exclusion of subordinate matter, and...the practitioner and student will find it a most excellent guide.": The Albany Law Journal 27 (1883) 420. Catalogue of the Library of the Harvard Law School (1909) II:534.
