Several supplements were also issued, which in 1837 were consolidated into one volume. It was also extensively used in America, where one edition with notes by Asa I. Fish appeared as late as 1856. Tidd was favoured by the approval of Uriah Heep : "I am improving my legal knowledge, Master Copperfield", said Uriah. "I am going through Tidd's 'Practice'. Oh, what a writer Mr Tidd is, Master Copperfield!" (Charles Dickens: David Copperfield, chap. 12).
