New article of interest: "Black's Law Dictionary: The Making of an American Standard"
This article is written by Sarah Yates and can be found at 103 Law Libr. J. 175 (2011).
From the abstract:
This article examines the history of Black's Law Dictionary, the methods used in its creation, and its evolution. It then compares Black's with its competitors and identifies factors both inherent in the works themselves and driven by external forces that have led to today's primacy of Black's over other law dictionaries.
