"The first dictionary which aimed at completeness as regards legal terms only was that of Cunningham..." Hicks, Materials and Methods of Legal Research. Third Rev. Edition 247. The author of more than twenty books, Cunningham [1718?-1789] was one of the most prolific legal writers of the eighteenth century. Like Jacob, Cunningham aimed to create a dictionary that would give a complete account of the law. The result is a work that is also an abridgment, and includes summaries of cases and precedents in equity and statutes. Along with those of Jacob and Marriot, it was one of the most popular comprehensive English dictionaries of the period, and was found in Thomas Jefferson's library.
