Here is the citation, verified from the book:

1820 Richard V. Barnewall & Edward H. Alderson _Reports of Cases Argued
and Determined in the Court of King's Bench_ III. 294  Mere collateral
damage must be stated in the declaration, in order to entitle the
plaintiff to give it in evidence, lest otherwise the defendant might be
taken by surprise.
