PREFACE.



Five years have elapsed since the last edition of this
work was published, and during that period there has
been considerable legislation, and a number of cases have
been decided, in connection with various matters dealt
with in it. The difficulty in preparing this edition — for
which the author and Mr. Charles Thwaites are again
jointly responsible — has been to embody all that was
necessary without increasing the bulk of the work, a
very material point with students, for whom it is, as
originally, still primarily intended. The additions and
emendations in the text are very numerous apart from
those necessitated by cases and statutes. By a very
careful revision, however, this edition has been made
even a few pages less than the last one. Certain
matter has been eliminated to make room for what
was new or seemed more important, but it is believed
that nothing really material has been omitted, and that
this present edition will be found as comprehensive
as any previous one and thoroughly brought down to
the present date. The Editors call attention to the
fact that they have in this edition given the date of
every English case quoted, as they think this often
proves of material assistance. This in itself has, of

v



VI PREFACE.

course, occasioned considerable extra labour. They
trust that this edition will meet with the same favour-
able reception that has been accorded to every prior
edition issued during the thirty-two years that have
elapsed since the work was originally published.

Since the text of this edition was printed, two
statutes have been passed which in some respects
affect the woi-k. They will be found mentioned on
the page of " Addenda et Corrigenda " which they
made necessary, and one of them is set out in an

appendix.

PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION.

The chief object of the present work is to supply the
student with a book upon the subject of Common
Law (or, in other words, of the law as usually ad-
ministered in the Queen's Bench, Common Pleas, and
Exchequer Divisions of the High Court of Justice),
which, while being elementary and readable on the one
hand, yet also goes sufficiently into the subject to pre-
pare the student for examination upon it. The present
work is indeed written mainly with a view to the
Examinations of the Incorporated Law Society, for
which the author has had considerable experience in
reading with students ; but at the same time he trusts
it may be found useful to those who are adopting the
other branch of the profession. The author does not
consider that any apology is necessary for presenting
this Avork, it being new in its design, as offering to the
student a comparatively short volume combining the
plain and popular divisions of " Contracts " and " Torts,"
and keeping as much as possible from all matters of
practice, and from Criminal Law, and also from all
matters of an exceptional nature and likely neither
to be useful in examination nor in practice. In addi-
tion to the two main divisions the author has added



VIU PREFACE TO FIEST EDITION.

another, in whicli the subjects of " Damages " and
" Evidence " are discussed, as no work on the " Common
Law " could be complete without.

Besides his chief object, the author has also had

another in view, viz., to produce a book which may —

if not always in itself, yet, at any rate, by aid of the

extensive references to either text-books or cases —

form a work useful to the practitioner. In many cases

it may — from its very size — be useful for this purpose

only as an index : and remembering this, the author

has considered that in many places references to larger

text-books would be preferable to cases, and has acted

accordingly ; and here he would acknowledge the

obligations he is under to the learned authors and

editors of the various works he has in the following

pages referred to.

With these few words the author sends his work
forth to speak for itself, and be judged on its merits,
assuring his readers that no pains have been spared on
his part to ensure accuracy, and trusting that his
labours may meet with approbation.
