ADVERTISEMENT TO THE FIFTH EDITION.
The Edition which is now submitted to Magistrates and the Legal Profession, has been carefully revised, and in many passages, re-written. The Statutes and Cases which have passed and been decided since the completion of its predecessor, are introduced with as much brevity as appeared to consist with the perspicuity essential to the attainment of its practical object in the hands of those gentlemen for whose use it is principally designed; but they have necessarily extended the volume. If these endeavours to adapt the work to the present state of the law, and to render it more useful to Magistrates, as well as Barristers and Solicitors engaged in Sessions Practice, are found in any degree successful, the result will be mainly attributable to the renewed assistance of my friend Mr. Tyrwhitt, whose strenuous industry, power of accurate analysis, and experience derived from long practice at the Quarter Sessions, have been most liberally devoted to the completion of the work.
