Wills on Circumstantial Evidence.-Third Edition.

8vo., 9s. boards, An ESSAY on the PRINCIPLES of CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE, illustrated by Numerous Cases. THIRD EDITION. By WILLIAM WILLs, Esq.

"I have read this Essay thoroughly and with great satisfaction. It is written clearly, strongly and elegantly, with conclusive evidence of much research and profound reflection."- The late Chancellor Kent.

“ The popularity which we ventured to prophesy for it has been achieved. The Third Edition is before us; and we heartily congratulate Mr. Wills on the reputation he has so worthily won.”—Law Times.

By GEORGE C. OKE, Author of "The Magisteriul Synopsis." ** The above Work is intended as a Companion to " Oke's Magisterial Synopsis," and may
