FIFTH EDITION, ENLARGE D.

NOTICE OF THIRD EDITION.—“The simple fact that this list of Statutes
has reached a third edition is its best recommendation to law students.
It was a very happy conception of Mr Marcy's to arrange the Statutes
under the different branches of law examinations, and his work is calcu-
lated to save students much labour. This edition is enlarged, and, there-
fore, increased in value.”- Law Times, 26th Nov. 1870.

A TREATISE

ON THE

BANKRUPTCY ACT OF 1869,

THE ABOLITION OF IMPRISONMENT FOR DEBT ACT, 1869,

THE BANKRUPTCY REPEAL ACT,

AND

THE RULES AND ORDERS UNDER THOSE ACTS; TOGETHER WITH AN INTRODUCTION AND NOTES, AND THE LAW

OF PRIVATE ARRANGEMENTS WITH CREDITORS.

BY

GEORGE SILLS, M.A., Of St John's Colleye, Cambridge, and of Lincoln's Inn, Barrister-at-Law,

AUTHOR OF “A TREATISE ON COMPOSITION DEEDS UNDER THE BANKRUPTCY ACTS OF

1861 AND 1868.”

"Mr Sills is already favourably known as an author upon the subject of Composition Deeds, and we may therefore expect him to be at home with the subject which he has now chosen. Inasmuch as the rules and orders' form part of the volume, it may be regarded as complete, and in form and size, and in cheapness, we may add, there is nothing to be desired. The introduction very clearly, and in a few words, contrasts the new Act with former legislation, and the chapters on the Act of 1869, as regards bankruptcy, liquidation by arrangement, composition with creditors, abolition of imprisonment for debt, and punishment of fraudulent debtors, are good, and the authorities are carefully collated. We can recommend the volume to all classes of practitioners.”- Law Magazine.

The cases having any practical bearing are carefully noted up, and a full index renders the book complete.”County Courts Chronicle.

That part of the book which is the work of the author, the Treatise, seems to be accurate in the statement, and will no doubt be found useful as an introduction to the study of the Act."- Solicitors' Journal.

“Mr Sills has given us seventy-three pages of very lawyer-like and lucid exposition of the new law. He seems, moreover, to have cited as many cases as could well be applicable. His Appendix contains all the machinery, and he completes the work with a carefully compiled Index.” -Law Times.

“The title-page of Mr Sill's book is a full index of the contents. It will suffice for us to remark that the author has carefully edited the various Acts and Rules and Orders. The Introduction, with notes, is a concise exposition of the new law.”Law Journal.

A TREATISE ON THE LAW,

AS AFFECTED BY THE

STATUTES

(22 and 23 Vict. c. 35, and 23 and 24 Vict. c. 38)

FOR THE AMENDMENT OF THE LAW OF PROPERTY

AND THE RELIEF OF TRUSTEES.

Containing a Full Inquiry into the Law applicable to the important Questions resulting from a Testamentary Charge of Real Estates with the Payment of Debts; and also Practical Remarks on the Investments authorised by these Acts, with a Collection of the Decisions relating thereto.

BY

ROGER WATTERS, ESQ.,

OF THE MIDDLE TEMPLE, BARRISTER-AT-LAW.

“Mr Watters subjects the Statutes mentioned above to a minute and searching anatomy and criticism. Unfriendly, though not unfair, hypercritical, but always learned and ingenious, he has produced an elaborate Commentary on the Acts, which, if not always available as a guide, will very frequently be useful as an indicator or monitor.”- Jurist.

"We think that this Treatise will be found useful in practice, so far as any Treatise on such specimens of piecemeal legislation as those to which it relates can be useful. Its style is clear, the diction used throughout good, and if the author sometimes inclines to transcendental speculation, he is, on the other hand, as a general rule, sufficiently practical and homely, and always interesting. We confidently recommend this work to those who require an instructive guide on the Statutes of which it treats. It contains a good table of contents and a copious index.-Solicitors' Journal.
