In 1911, a primer on the "Principles of Private Substantive Law" for farmers and agricultural students by Professor Hugh Evander Willis of the University of Minnesota Law School, was published by Orange Judd Company of New York. Its almost 500 pages were "digested" in Volume 7 of "The Book Review Digest," page 508 (December 1911):
"A manual containing the principles of private substantive law, adapted for the use of farmers and students in agricultural colleges. It treats the whole of private substantive law, including all of the rights of men for which the state will provide remedies as well as the rights to such remedies, the methods by which the state aids and protects such rights alone being omitted. Legal forms, examinations and review questions, a glossary and an index follow the text."
