PRINCIPLES of the LAW of REAL PROPERTY, intended as a First Book for the use of Students in Conveyancing. By JOSHUA WILLIAMS, Esq., of Lincoln's Inn, Barrister at Law. ... The publisher begs to call the attention of the Profession, and especially its junior members, to the present work, which contains an original elementary outline of conveyancing law as it now exists. The statutes of the last session relating to conveyancing are referred to throughout the body of the work; so that the student is saved the inconvenience, generally experienced in the perusal of a new edition of an old work, of finding the impressions he has acquired from the text afterwards modified or contradicted in the notes. The work is intended, to use the words of the author in his Preface, as "A First Book for the Use of Students in Conveyancing, as easy and readable as the nature of the subject will allow. In attempting this object, he has not always folinteresting course of original investigation. He has endeavoured to lowed the old beaten track, but has pursued the more difficult, yet more lead the student rather to work out his knowledge for himself, than to be content to gather fragments at the hands of authority. If the student wishes to become an adept in the practice of conveyancing, he must first be a master of the science; and if he would master the science, he should first trace out to their sources those great and leading principles, which, when well known, give easy access to innumerable minute details."

In Walters v.
