The SEVENTH EDITION of THE MAGISTERIAL SYNOPSIS: a Practical Guide for Magistrates, their Clerks, Attornies and Constables, in all Matters out of Quarter Sessions ; Summary Convictions and Indictable Offences, with their Penalties, Punishment, Procedure, &c., being tabularly arranged.
“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.”—Lord Chancellor Campbell, in the House of Lords, February 23, 1860.
“Oke has fairly, superseded Archhold. . Nobody acquainted with the books of both, and having occasion to use them, will hesitate to indorse this assertion. * * 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 bas 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.

"In the Synopsis' Mr. Oke is unique; the plan was perfectly original, land 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.
