“I am aware that the Lord Mayor has at present an able assistant in the person of a gentleman of the name of Oke, author of the Magisterial Synopsis,' a very enterprising, able and learned man.”—The Lord Chancellor Campbell, in the House of Lords, February 23, 1860.
“Oke has fairly superseded Archbold. Nobody acquainted with the books of both, and having occasion to use them, will hesitate to indorse this assertion.
It is now as complete as such a work can be. It needs not description, for it must be well known to all engaged in Magistrates' Courts. For us remains only the easy and agreeable task of recording its appearance as among the legal intelligence of the time, and congratulating Mr. Oke on the well-deserved success that has attended his ingenious labours, and the reward so well earned by his advancement to an important office through the fame achieved by this work.”- Law Times, 1860.

"In the. Synopsis' Mr. Oke is unique; the plan was perfectly original, and he has no competitor. In the Turnpike Law' he is himself a competitor with others, who had previously possession of the field. Nevertheless. so well has he executed his design that his volume has fairly taken precedence in the esteem of the profession, because he has written it with the same industrious research and painstaking correction which distinguished the 'Synopsis.'"-Law Times.

GEORGE C. OKE,
Law Publishers to the Queen's most excellent Majesty.
The New Criminal Law Acts having rendered necessary some amendment of the Seventh Edition of “The MagisTERIAL SYNOPSIS," my Publishers have been urgently, and at a late period, called upon by numerous regular Subscribers to my Works for a Supplement to it comprising the Offences, Punishments, Procedure, &c., enacted by these. Acts, alphabetically and tabularly arranged as in the original Work.
I have, therefore, exerted my best endeavours to present in this Volume the new Law in the mode that has been found so useful by the Magistracy and Practitioners, and as speedily as well as accurately as the limited period allowed me admitted ; I trust, therefore, it will meet with the accustomed favor that has been extended to my previous Works.
I may add that its issue at the present moment results more from a courteous desire to meet so general a demand from purchasers of the Seventh Edition of the “Synopsis” that has reached me through my Publishers, than from any immediate or personal consideration of pecuniary profit.
