The popularity of the “Recollections of the Court Room” in England, has induced the American publishers to issue the work uniform with the series of tales known as “The Confessions of an Attorney," "
Experiences of a Barrister,” etc. ; works which have had extraordinary success. This edition is not an exact reprint of the English one ; many errors, to be attributed to haste, have been corrected ; much matter, of a local interest merely, has been omitted, and several narratives, among which are those entitled Eugene Aram, The Force of Fear, The Unlawful Gift, etc., have been added. In addition to the fact that these tales are authentic, it is certain that their aim and tendency are good ; they are pure, and they are instructive as well as interesting.
