PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION

MoEE than eight yeai's have elapsed since the puhhcation
of the first edition of this book.

During that period there has been a certain amount of
legislation, and a great number of cases have been decided.

All of this I have endeavoured to incorporate in this
edition.

I have been compelled to divide the book into two volumes,
but in other respects the very kind reception which was
accorded to the first edition has led me to keep to m}^
original plan.

Accordingly, while I have dealt with the subject from a
lawyer's point of view, I have given very special attention to
all matters which concern accountants, secretaries, auditors,
receivers, and liquidators.

I have paid special attention to bringing all questions
of practice and procedure up to date.

The Companies Acts, 1908 to 1917, and all rules and
regulations made thereunder, and such of the Stock Exchange
"Rules and Regulations as relate to official quotations and
special settlements appear once more in the Appendices,
and I have added an Appendix setting out certain circulars
issued by the Board of Inland Revenue.

Mr. J. R. Bull and Mr. R. Y. Marvin, of the Companies
(Winding-up) Department, have rendered me much valuable
assistance, and the officials of the Board of Trade have given
me every help with regard to their Department, To all these
gentlemen I offer my most sincere thanks. I should like also
to thank the Committee of the Stock Exchange for their per-
mission to publish extracts from their rules, and the Board of
Inland Revenue for allowing me to insert their circulars.

ARTHUR STIEBEL.
