      what Pujals published in 1855 for his method,
      because both of them were essentially different.
      His was original in the idea, order of words
      and examples that dominated it; he added in
      the rejoinder that the law could not prohibit
      publishing works of the same class and addressing
      the object itself, however similar the method
      might be with regard to its ideas, essence and form,
      because the explanation and development constitute
      a property that is different from the reprinting
      and reproduction.
            
      
            Whereas, having presented the evidence that
      the parties produced, the Judge of the First Instance
      Court issue its decision on 26 October 1857 that the
      First Chamber of this Court confirmed on 30 June 1859.
      They acquitted Mr. Tomás Hurtado of the proceedings filed
      by Mr. Vicente Pujals de la Bastida, who lodged the current
      cassation appeal on the belief that Articles 1 and 10 of
      the aforementioned Literary Property Act and one of the
      axioms applicable to every proceeding had been infringed,


    



            para su método el publicado por Pujals en mil ocho-
            cientos cincuenta y cinco, pues uno y otro se diferencia-
            ban esencialmente, como que el de este pugnaba con la
            lógica, y el suyo era original en la idea, órden de las pa-
            labras y de los ejemplos que dominaban en él; añadiendo
            en el escrito de dúplica que la ley no podía prohibir la
            publicacion de obras de una misma clase y dirigidas al
            propio objeto, por mas que fuesen semejantes en el método,
            en sus ideas, en su esencia y en su forma, porque la esplana-
            ción y desenvolvimiento constituyen una propiedad distin-
            ta de la reimpresión y reproduccion:
            
                  Resultando que, practicadas las pruebas que las
            partes articularon, dictó sentencia el Juez de primera ins-
            tancia en veinte y seis de Octubre de mil ochocientos cin-
            cuenta y siete, que confirmó la Sala primera de la Au-
            diencia de esta Corte en treinta de junio de mil ochocient-
            tos cintuncienta y nueve, absolviendo a D. Tomás Hurtado
            de la demanda de D. Vicente Pujals de la Bastida, y
            que este interpuso el actual recurso de Casacion por creer
            infrigidos los artículos primero y décimo de la referida
