LAW OF BANKS AND

The object of this book is to present the law of the subject in brief compass, in accordance with the plan of the Hornbook Series. The author has had in view, however, that the subject is one that concerns rather practitioners than law students, and for this reason he has covered many questions in the text and notes that might have been omitted, had the book been intended primarily for law students, and he has made a fuller citation of the decisions than he would otherwise have done. The fundamental part of the law of banks and banking relates to the various transactions between banks and bankers and those dealing with them. The author has not entered upon the field of corporation law, except so far as the law of banking corporations seemed to require special discussion, and he has not dealt with the varying statutory provisions of the different states respecting banking corporations; but he has endeavored to cover the field of national banks and the National Bank Act, so far as it is affected by the decisions. The National Bank Act and other provisions of the federal statutes relating to national banks are printed in an Appendix, with historical and explanatory notes prepared by the editorial staff of the publishers. When treating of questions concerning checks and other negotiable instruments, the author has referred to the Negotiable Instruments Law, and has pointed out the not infrequent changes introduced by it.
With a view to making the book, so far as possible within its scope, an index to the cases, the publishers have supplemented the notes by references, prepared by their editorial staff, to the American Digest System, both to the Century and to the Decennial (Key-Number) Digests. These citations will enable any one who consults the book, not only to turn quickly to additional cases upon the particular point to which the note refers, but by means of the Key-Number to command the later cases which may be found in the digests hereafter published.
