In the decades that led up to the Civil War, this classic, highly-regarded civil law treatise was required reading for practitioners, scholars, as well as law students.

Martin, a printer from New Bern, North Carolina, gained distinction for this translation, which he published in 1802. The Treatise on Obligations was soon recognized as a major contribution to legal science, translated by Evans and frequently cited in British Courts. Walker 973. Marvin quotes Sir William Jones introduction of Pothiers Obligations to the bar in England: For my own part, I am so charmed with them, that if my undissembled fondness for the study of jurisprudence, were never to produce any greater benefit to the public, than barely the introduction of Pothier to the acquaintances of my countrymen, I should think that I had, in some measure, discharged the debt which every man, according to Lord Coke owes to his profession.: Marvin, Legal Bibliography 578.
