PREFACE.

The selection of Leading Cases in Equity having been favourably received in this country, and also in the United States, where it was edited by two distinguished Members of the American Bar,* the present selection of Leading Cases on Real Property, Conveyancing, and the Construction of Wills and Deeds, has been made, to which Notes are appended in the same method as that adopted in the Leading Cases in Equity.

In so wide a field as that chosen for the subject of this Work, the Author has carefully endeavoured to select all those Cases the knowledge of which is of the greatest importance to the Real Property Lawyer and Conveyancer ; and he ventures to hope that the Notes, as well as the Cases, may be found useful both to the Student and Practitioner.

16, OLD SQUARE, LINCOLN'S INN,

January, 1856.

* Mr. (now Mr. Justice) John Innis Clark Hare and the late Mr. Horace Binney Wallace.
