"In Leach's edition [of v. 7] the size of this volume is trebvlee by the addition of new cases from the manuscripts of Wright and Luke Benne, covering the years 1733-1744 ... The volume of [cases] ... is more than doubled in Leach's edition [of v. 9] by the addition of chancery. cases (1739-1755) from the manuscripts of Samuel Salte and Charles Butler ... In Leach's edition [of v. 11] large additions are made, of new cases, covering 1718-1730, from the manuscripts of Jonathan Wells. Leach's edition, however, omits some of Lutwyche's improvement in the 1781 edition, which are given entire in the Dublin octavo edition." cf Soule, Lawyers ref. manual, 1884.
