Cord, William H. A Treatise on the Legal and Equitable Rights of Married Women. 2nd ed., revised and annotated. Philadelphia: Kay and Brother, 1885.
William H. Cord (dates unknown) authored A Treatise on the Legal and Equitable Rights of Married Women (1861) as a resource for courts and practitioners "to better secure the rights of married women." The treatise explores the legal history and basis in civil law of the rights of married women. It presents rulings under the common law and in equity, then outlines changes in current case law along with new and unsettled points of law. The second edition (1885) reflects changes in the legal rights of married women since the treatise's initial publication.
