PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION.
This pamphlet contains the general act concerning corporations, as revised in 1875, and published in the “Revision of New Jersey," under the title "Corporations."
A number of supplements and amendatory acts have been passed since the Revision was adopted, and these are also inserted.
Where sections have been amended, the section is here printed as amended, and a note of the date of the amendment made; the other supplements and acts amendatory have been added at the end of the original act. For convenience of reference all the sections in the book have been numbered consecutively. The first one hundred and six numbers are identical with those of the Revision; the others are added by the editor.
The notes comprise such decisions of the New Jersey Courts as are believed to be of practical use in founding a corporation, and of interest to those managing corporate affairs.
The forms which have been appended include the certificates, waivers and notices necessary to the formation of companies, and the reports and statements required to be filed from time to time after they have been established.
A programme for the first meeting of a company, and a list of the matters to be provided for in the by-laws, are also added.
This publication is intended chiefly for the information of the officers and shareholders of corporations, and the use of persons organizing companies, but it is hoped that the convenience of having the several acts thus grouped together, and of having at hand precedents for the proceedings required by the acts, will recommend the book to the favor of the profession also.
