Of particular importance to a law librarian, but not without interest to the lawyer and student alike, are the bibliographical data and desiderata which pertain to the legal publications of their immediate locale. Through such desiderata, facts, which frequently may be quite unknown or which may have been overlooked, are brought to light and preserved for future interpretative research. Oftentimes, the circumstances surrounding these publications may be unknown or may not have attracted attention because of their common character and daily use. Oftentimes, also, the user may have been too close to them to perceive any peculiarities of imprint, pagination or form.
