FROM MICHAELMAS TERM, 1822, To TRINITY TERM, 1828,
Printed by James Holmes, 4, Took's Court, Chancery Lane.
The title-page of this work sufficiently explains its object and contents. Having been originally intended solely for the use of Subscribers to the first Six Volumes of the Law JOURNAL,* and as a substitute for the Annual Digests supplied with that publication, it has not been brought down to so recent a period as might perhaps be desirable for general use; but the extent, novelty, and convenience, of a Digest of Cases decided in all the English Courts during so long a period of time, has induced the Proprietor to believe that it will be acceptable to the Profession, and he has therefore printed an additional number of copies to be disposed of to Non-subscribers.
Of the manner in which the Editor has performed his task of preparing the work for the press, use alone can afford the means of forming a correct judgment. He has spared no pains to secure accuracy, to guard against the omission of any cases, and to arrange his materials in such a manner as to give every facility of reference.
• Published in the years 1823, 1824, 1825, 1826, 1827, 1828.
As the 11th and 12th Volumes of Bayly Moore's Reports were not published when the early sheets were put to press, references have been given in the Table of Cases at the end of the volume to the cases contained in them, which are also reported in MR. BINGHAM's Reports and in the Law JOURNAL; and such cases as have not been noticed in the latter reports, are inserted in the
In conclusion, it may not be unimportant, and may perhaps add to the value of this work, to observe, that upwards of 1000 cases exclusively reported in the Law Journal, are here abstracted.
