Die Rechtsprechung beginnt mit dem Fall Vernon against Vernon vom 21. November 1737 und schließt mit dem Fall Turner gegen Turner aus dem Jahree 1783. Im Jahre 1828 erschien eine zweite Auflage, ediert von J. E. Blunt. These Reports, as originally published by the author, were not what the profession had a right to except from a lawyer of Mr. Ambler`s experience and abilities. In the preface to his Reports he says: ″ This work, I am aware, derives its only pretensions to merit, from being an accurate relation of facts, and opinions of great me presiding in courts of justice”. The accuracy on which the reporter prides himself, has not been granted to him by the profession, which affords but another example of the inability of authors always to judge of their own productions. “His Reports are well known to be an extremely careless and imperfect production. The facts of most of the cases are stated shortly and defectively; in many, the dicta of the judges, in some, even the points themselves have been erroneously reported. The only notice which some of the most important cases in the book have received, is a short momorandum of the point determinde. The notes taken in the earlier part of his life, evidently bear few marks of subsequent revision; and the frequent discovery of errors has given a reputation for inaccuracy to the publication”. (58)
