ADVERTISEMENT.

The object of the Editor has been to produce a useful book, in as small a compass as practicable.

Convinced, from repeated perusal, that the Second Report of the Common Law Commissioners, would be found advantageous for reference in court, and deeming it no disparagement to any of the numerous editions of this Act, to say, that the Report, considering its source, is likely to prove the best commentary upon the Act, the Editor has preferred printing the Report entire, to the usual analytical introduction.

The notes to the sections of the Act have been condensed, and instead of interpolating a great deal to be met with in the ordinary books of practice, reference has been made to the parts of such works themselves, where the requisite information is to be found.

In the chapters on the New Equitable Jurisdiction, the labour of the Editor has been much lightened by the kind permission of his friend, T. A. Roberts, Esq., of the Equity Bar, to extract from his able treatise on the Principles of Equity : (Wildy, 1854.)
