PREFACE.

The following Lectures on the law of Landlord and Tenant were delivered by the late Mr. John William Smith, at the Law Institution, in the years 1841 and 1842.

They are printed as they were left by the Author ; all the authorities referred to by him being inserted in the text.

The Editor is responsible for the foot-notes, for those portions of the text which are included within brackets, and for the headings to the Lectures, and the marginal notes.

The new matter inserted in the foot-notes has been added chiefly with the view of showing the alterations in the law since the Lectures were delivered, and the practical application, in the later decisions, of the principles mentioned in the text. The Editor has also endeavoured, by the addition of many of the earlier cases, to make the work more useful, not only for Students, but as a Circuit Companion.
