1 Spruce Street, N. Y.

This is not a mere reprint with additions ; it is in the most enlarged sense a new edition. Every note has been revised, many excised, some entirely rewritten, others condensed, and very many added, the additions far exceeding the increase (208 pages) in the bulk of the volume. The present edition, it is believed, exhibits a complete epitome of the law and practice under the code of procedure, as it existed and was understood at the time of this publication, and contains a reference to every reported and many manuscript decisions of our own and foreign courts, germain to the text, with the latest amendments of the law and the rules of court, arranged on the plan adopted in the preceding editions.

The index is new, and the facility of reference increased by distinguishing the notes by letters prefixed to the paragraphs on each page, alphabetically. The editor of the preceding editions edited this; and he has availed himself of every means experience has suggested to render the present volume useful to the profession, and worthy a continuance of the favor with which the preceding editions have been received.

New York, October, 1855.
