Chattel Security: II, 57 YALE L.J. 761 (1948)

Abstract

The trust receipt or something very like it first appeared in our reports
in a case decided before 1850 and another of the earliest cases
involved a grain shipment on the Great Lakes. Nevertheless the device
did not come into prominence until the end of the century and
was then used exclusively in transactions originating in overseas shipments
to this country. Its invention and development furnishes in our
legal history a unique example of response to a rapidly changing industrial
pattern.
