PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION.
THE plan of this book has not, it is believed, been adopted in any previous work, with the exception of Watkin's Principles of Conveyancing, the last edition of which, although published some thirty years ago, is still in considerable demand. So many changes have taken place since then in the law and practice of conveyancing that the Author has ventured to hope that there may be room for another treatise of a somewhat similar nature. The present work, however, is purely elementary; it contains nothing which is not familiar to the practitioner, and aims only at the assistance of students entering upon the difficulties of real property law. The second part comprises, in substance, some lectures delivered by the Author at the Law Institution in the years 1873 and 1874, and is inserted here by the kind permission of the Council of the Incorporated Law Society.
PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION.
IN preparing this edition the Author has endeavoured to explain the important changes in real property law and conveyancing which have taken place since the first edition was published.
