industrious research and painstaking correction which distinguished the synop. sis."-Law Times.

"There can be no doubt that the notes of Mr. Knox Wigram have enhanced the value of the work, as affording a ready reference to recent cases on the subjects embraced or arising out of Sir James Wigram's propositions, and which fre

quently give additional support, and in some instances an extension to the original text."-Law Chronicle.

"Understood as general guides, the propositions established by Sir James Wigram's book are of the highest value.

"Of the numerous text books which the Bankruptcy Act of last session has called forth, this is the first which is devoted to the practice in bankruptcy of the County Courts, and we have no hesitation in saying, that, in respect of method and research, it is by far the most creditable of them all. On the whole, we are seldom able to give such unqualified praise as this little manual deserves. It is evidently the careful production of a sound lawyer and skilful writer. Certainly, no book relating to the New Bankruptcy Act which has yet been issued, exhibits so much of good faith and real labour in its authorship as the one now before us, and we have no doubt it will long

remain the book in County Court Practice in Bankruptcy for county practice."-Solicitors' Journal.

A practical little volume designed for the special use of the County Courts. A volume which supplies a requirement in the County Courts, though it must not be considered as a substitute for any formal treatise on the law of bankruptcy; it is only what it is designed to be, a summary of bankruptcy practice in the County Courts: as far as it goes, it is a very creditable and useful production."-Law Times.

"It is a useful practical guide, written with care and knowledge of the subject."Jurist.

"There is a closeness and clearness in its style, and a latent fulness in the exposition, which not only argue a knowledge

of the law, but of those varying circumstances in human society to which the law has to be applied."-Spectator.

"Mr. Fry's elaborate essay appears to exhaust the subject, on which he has cited and brought to bear, with great diligence, some 1,500 cases, which include those of the latest reports."-Law Magazine and Review.
