“The Common Law Procedure Act, 1852.”
AN ELABORATE INDEX.
JOHN FREDERICK ARCHBOLD, Esq.
Law Printers and Publishers.
A WORK written by me on the Practice, Pleading, and Evidence, in the courts of Common Law at Westminster; was recently published, and, I am happy to say, most favourably received by the Profession. Since then, the New Rules of Practice, the rules for the examination, admission, and re-admission of Attorneys, and the new Table of Costs, have been promulgated and published; and I thought I owed it to the Profession to give them those rules and table of costs, by way of supplement to the work I have above mentioned. The rules indeed make little difference in the practice. In framing them the Judges have adopted most of the old rules, with little alteration, adding others where they were required by the recent Procedure Act. The table of costs was most anxiously expected, and is now heartily welcomed, by all those who were anxious that the public should have the best law, that which is most perfectly administered, at a reasonable expense; and I have gladly availed myself of the opportunity of giving it here. As to the Statute itself, the several provisions of it were inserted in my former work, in most cases verbatim. But as many persons would wish to have it as a whole, I have made it
also part of this supplement. To these I have added an Index, framed in such a way that any måtter contained in the Rules and Statute may be found in a moment, with great ease ;—the Index referring not only to the page, but to the rule or section in the page, where the matter indicated will be found.
