PREFACE



It is now forty years since any work upon tliis
subject has appeared, and, in tlie belief tliat there
is now a want for a modern and concise book upon
the subject, the authors have ventured to publish
this work, in the hope that it may, to some extent,
prove useful to both branches of the profession.

They still adhere to the old term Ejectment, in
preference to the new term " Action for the Re-
covery of Land," which is now used in the Orders
and Rules of the Supreme Court, the latter term
never having come into general use.

Wishing to make this work as concise as possible,
they have purposely omitted to deal with many
subjects relating to the law of real property which
perhaps might be considered within its scope, and
have endeavoured to confine themselves strictly to
those points which are most closely connected with an
action of ejectment. In the text the provisions of
the many statutes which are dealt with are not set
out at length, but the actual words of all the more



VI PREFACE.

important statutes are set out in the Appendix, an
arrangement whicb the authors think will commend
itself as being most convenient. Where cases are
cited a reference to only one report is given, but
the Index of Cases gives the reference to all the
reports in which each case is to be found.
