OPINIONS OF THE PRESS ON THE SECOND EDITION.
"The vast amount of the capital embarked in the undertakings of Companies is a guarantee that the second edition of Mr. Palmer's Company Precedents' will not lack attention from shareholders, directors, and counsel. The additions that have been made to the present edition are not of secondary interest; they comprise such essentials as directions for the composition of prospectuses and for practice in winding-up and in arrangements with creditors We can confidently recommend Mr. Palmer's
book to the large class whom it concerns."-The Times.
"The first edition of this book appeared in 1877, and in our review of it we'ventured to predict that Mr. Palmer's notes would be found of great practical utility in guiding opinions on many complicated questions of law and practice.' That this forecast has been fulfilled may be fairly asserted, not only from the appearance, thus early, of a second edition, but also from the reputation which Mr. Paimer's work has acquired In our review of the first edition we entered so fully into the scope and merits of Mr. Palmer's work, that it is unnecessary for us again to call attention thereto. In fact Palmer's Company Precedents' is too well known and has become too much of a standard work to require such treatment. To those who are acquainted with the first edition, we recommend the second as a great improvement to those who are not, we recommend an early acquaintance therewith, if, either as lawyers or business men, they are in any way connected with Companies."-Law Journal.
"The favourable opinion which we expressed of this work on its first issue has been justified by the speedy demand for a second edition. Well designed and ably executed, it has proved of much practical utility to the draftsman. The present edition has been thoroughly revised Speaking from practical experience in the use of the
volume, we can confidently recommend it to the Profession."-Law Magazine.
"Use of the first edition of Mr. Palmer's book in practice enables us to speak with some confidence of the excellence of its design and of the execution being on the whole careful and satisfactory. The present edition appears in a considerably enlarged form and includes a large number of new forms Both as regards memoranda and articles, we are glad to observe increased attention paid to the 'private' Company, which now occupies so much of the attention of the Company draftsman The orders and precedents in winding-up have been enormously increased in number, and are now a most complete collection, covering the proceedings at every stage. It will be seen that the scope of the work has been largely increased."-Solicitors' Journal.

PREFACE TO THIRD EDITION.
THE object of this work is to bring together a body of Forms and Precedents for use in relation to the formation, working, and winding-up of companies under the Companies Acts, 1862 to 1883.
A considerable amount of space is devoted to notes explaining the Forms and Precedents, and illustrating them by references to the decided cases and to the
In this edition the following additional divisions have been included, viz.-POLICIES, PRIVATE COMPANIES, WRITS. Moreover, a great many new forms have been inserted in the other divisions, and the notes throughout the work have been extended and revised. By the adoption of a few abbreviations-e.g., " for "company," and "sd" for " said," much space has been gained.
Considering that many hundred millions* are now
* It appears from the Parliamentary Paper, Session 1883, c. 3542, that the paid-up capital of companies believed to be carrying on business in February, 1883, was upwards of £410,000,000; and, besides this, it is probable that £100,000,000 is invested in debentures.
