PREFACE.

This book is intended to furnish a statement of the law relating to auctions, and to serve as a guide to auctioneers in their business.

The present edition is the sixth. The first three editions were prepared by the late Dr. Joseph Bateman, of Lincoln's Inn: the fourth and fifth by Mr. Rolla Rouse, of the Middle Temple. The first edition was published in 1838, the third in 1846, the fifth in 1874.

The work has now been brought up to date and almost entirely recast and rewritten.

The following are some of the particulars in which this edition differs from its predecessor : 1. The division of the treatise into three parts, “Pre

liminary Regulations,” “Incidents of Sale," and

“Posterior Regulations,” has been abandoned. 2. A short chapter upon interpleader has been added;
