PREFACE.

The object of this work is to present to the reader the Principles and Practice of the Law of Libel and Slander in a concise form ; and, considering the large and increasing number of actions of this kind with which the Courts are occupied, it is hoped that the book may prove useful to the Legal Profession. The Law is stated in the form of Propositions, followed by Explanatory Notes, in the preparation of which the original authorities have in every case been consulted.

Several cases of importance which have been decided in the last few years have received special notice. Appendix A. contains some practical suggestions on the conduct of a Civil Action, together with Forms and Precedents. In Appendix B. will be found all the Statutes bearing on the Law of Libel and Slander, with references under each section to particular pages in the text.
