AND EDITOR OF THE OFFICIAL REPORTS OF PATENT CASES,
CHARLES F. CAGNEY, B.A.,

BUTTERWORTH & CO., 7, FLEET STREET,

THE RIGHT HONORABLE
WITH HIS PERMISSION,
MOST RESPECTFULLY DEDICATED
By THE EDITORS.
TO THE SEVENTH EDITION.
In preparing this Edition, the law has been brought down so as to cover all Statutes passed and all cases reported up to September 30th, 1897. Such of the Statutes passed and cases reported between that date and the date of the last Edition upon subjects dealt with herein as are of sufficient importance have been incorporated into this Edition, although we have adhered to the principle of giving, as a general rule, only one authority for any proposition which requires authority.
The Table of Cases contains over 160 cases which are not to be found in the Table of Cases in the last Edition; while very few cases cited in the last Edition are omitted in the present Edition. An alteration in this Edition is that only one reference to Reports is given in respect of each case in the body of the book; for other references the Table of Cases must be resorted to.
