OF THE INNER TEMPLE, ESQUIRE, BARRISTER-AT-LAW, LATE SCHOLAR OF
TRINITY COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE.
IN TWO VOLUMES.
STEVENS AND SONS, LIMITED, 119 & 120, CHANCERY LANE,
TORONTO: CARSWELL AND CO.,
TO THE SIXTEENTH EDITION.
The arrangement of this Edition is the same as that of the previous Editions, as it has been found that, notwithstanding recent changes, the old forms of action under the Common Law Procedure Acts afford the most convenient headings under which to arrange the various classes of actions,
The number of cases now added is unusually large, owing to the larger number decided, resulting from the increase of Courts. The decisions are brought down in the Addenda to date. The Table of Cases has, for greater clearness, been printed in the same type as the text.
The multiplicity of decisions on the Bills of Sale Acts, has rendered it necessary to re-write and considerably enlarge the section devoted thereto, and it is hoped that it will be found to contain a fairly complete summary of the law on the subject. The paragraphs on the Married Women's Property Act, 1882, have also been re-written, and extended so far as is likely to be useful at Nisi Prius. In other instances, too numerous to be mentioned here, the course of recent decisions has obliged the Editor to re-write or modify paragraphs appearing in the last Edition.
The Bankruptcy Act, 1890, has been incorporated in this Edition; and, among other recent statutes, the Riot (Damages) Act, 1886, the Factors Act, 1889, the Arbitration Act, 1889, and the Directors' Liability Act, 1890, will be found under appropriate headings.
