The Commercial Law " lies within a narrow compass, and it is far purer and
freer from defects than any other part of the system. This arises from its later
origin. It has grown up within two centuries, or little more, and been formed by
degrees, as the exigency of mercantile affairs required. It is accepted, too, in
many of its main branches, by other States, forming a Code Commercial to all
trading nations, which cannot easily be changed without their general consent.”
