Appendix Part I. p. 241.

Part II. p. 505.

II. p. 589.

III. p. 719

In each of those chapters an analysis is given of the provisions of the Companies Act, 1862, relating to the particular subject-matter, and attention is directed to the parts that require most to be considered in putting into practice the provisions of the several statutes.

The eighth chapter contains observations on the Companies Act, 1867.

These two parts are followed by three Appendices. Appendix J. is divided into two parts. Part I. contains the Companies Act, 1862; the Companies Act, 1867; and the Joint Stock Companies Arrangement Act, 1870.

Notes have been added on the construction of the various sections, and in all cases where matters of detail, not discussed in the preceding parts, seemed to require explanation.

Part II. contains the Rules and Orders of the Court of Chancery for regulating the mode of proceeding under the Companies Acts, 1862 and 1867, accompanied with schedules of fees and charges and forms of all the documents of any importance that are used in the course of the proceedings for winding up.

Appendix II. contains a collection of precedents of memoranda and articles of association, as well as other forms used in getting up companies, for example, Letters of Allotment, and Certificates of Shares, and forms of Special Resolutions, and other forms necessary for working the Act.

Appendix III. contains the Industrial and Provident Societies Acts, the Life Assurance Companies Acts, the


Partnership Law Amendment Act, and the Sale and Purchase of Bank Shares Act.

In conclusion, I may state that I was employed in preparing the Joint Stock Companies Acts, 1856, 1857, 1858, the Joint Stock Banking Companies Act, 1857, and the consolidation of those Acts by the Companies Act, 1862, and have therefore of necessity directed my attention for some years past to the study of the law, and to the consideration of the judicial decisions, relating to Joint Stock Companies and other Public Associations.

December, 1866.
