NOTE TO THE SECOND EDITION.
Tuis Second American Edition has been prepared from the Second London Edition with Mr. Granger's additions. These consist of the latest decisions and statutes, and are incorporated with the body of the work. Perhaps as the book is to be considered principally as a manual for the practising advocate, and its great merit its completeness as a compilation and arrangement of law, this course was to be preferred to distinguish the new matter from the original text. The Second London Edition comprises about one hundred pages more than the First Edition, and there is of course a corresponding increase in the size of this volume. The American Notes have been carefully revised and brought up, and further references have been made to the edition of English Crown Cases published in this country.

NOTE TO THIS EDITION.
It will be observed that this, which has been prepared from the Third London Edition, has been considerably enlarged and improved. The American References have again been revised and brought up, and the Work, it is hoped, made still more worthy of that patronage, which it has hitherto so liberally received.

In this edition (in which the editor has had the assistance of Mr. Peter Burke) the statutes are brought down to the 8 & 9 Victoria, and throughout the work a reference has been made to the corresponding Irish enactments.
