This treatise has been widely received as a leading authority both in the country and in England.
This was the first detailed work published in the United States concerning principles which relate to the right of property in tide waters, i.e., those waters in which there is an ebbing and flowing of the tide. There is a broad scope of topics covering such areas as the development of common law doctrines, the right of fishery, delimitation, the right to seaweed, rights acquired by prescription and custom, statutes and usage, adjoining owner rights, and wrecked property thrown on the shore.
