The NEW PRACTICE of the HIGH COURT of ADMIRALTY of ENGLAND; with the Rules of 1859, and a Collection of Original Forms, and Bills of Costs, &c. By HENRY CHARLES COOTE, F.S.A., one of the Examiners of the High Court of Admiralty of England, Author of "The Practice of the New Court of Probate," "The Practice of the Ecclesiastical Courts," &c. 8vo. 12s. cloth.

"Mr. Coote has promptly entered the new field thus opened to him, and laid the first modern book on the subject before the new comers. He has the great advantage of experience, as he has been long a practitioner in the Court as a proctor."-Law Times.

"It is a very excellent and complete production." Law Chronicle.

"The work before us is characterized by lucid arrangement of the subject-matter, as well as by a constant appreciation of what suits the convenience of practitioners."-Solicitors' Journal.


The PRACTICAL CONVEYANCER, a companion to ROUSE'S PRACTICAL MAN, giving, in a mode combining facility of reference with general utility, upwards of Four Hundred Precedents of Conveyances, Mortgages, and Leases; a Collection of Miscellaneous Forms; and (added in the present edition) Forms of Settlement and Separation Deeds. By ROLLA ROUSE, Esq., of the Middle Temple, Barrister at Law, author of "The Practical Man," &c. &c. &c. Second Edition, greatly enlarged. In 2 vols. 8vo. 26s. cloth.

"The work has been materially enlarged, expanded indeed into two volumes, and the references throughout have been carefully verified and tested. We entertain no sort of doubt that The Practical Conveyancer' will, in its present improved form, be acceptable to and appreciated by the profession."-Law Magazine and Review.

"The work now consists of two volumes, the second containing the clauses, and the first is confined to the outline forms. This is a very important practical improvement, as the two volumes can thus be readily used without any necessity of shutting up either whilst referring to the outlines or the clauses. It may truly be said to offer more facilities to the draughtsman than any other work comprising Conveyancing Precedents. Mr. Rouse's work is one which an intelligent clerk may readily adapt to any required draft."-Law Chronicle.

It is but justice to Mr. Rouse to say, that although he has added largely to the bulk of his work, he has done so legitimately, by increasing the number of Precedents. The changes are decided improvements. The arrangement is extremely convenient. If the first edition found favour with the profession, much more is this second edition entitled to their regard." Law Times.

"It is not often in these days, when so much has been already written and so much more is being constantly poured

from the press, that one comes across a book that can in any sense be called original. Mr. Rolla Rouse is, however, entitled to whatever credit is implied in this epithet, for except so far as he has borrowed from himself, and developed in a new field the idea first embodied in the well known Practical Man,' there is nothing in legal literature that bears the faintest resemblance to the Practical Conveyancer.' There is this special advantage in Mr. Rouse's thoroughly systematic arrangement, that it is possible to get at home with his precedents mach more quickly than with any other work of the kind. Altogether the book strikes us as a very effective labour-saving machine, and one that will be found of especial value to practitioners, the extent of whose business compels them to delegate a good deal of their conveyancing to clerks, who need some little preliminary instruction to enable them to set about a complicated draft in the right way. The book in short de. serves its title, and may, we think, be relied on as a really Practical Conveyancer."Solicitors' Journal and Reporter.

This is a new and materially improved edition in two vols. of a work whose practical utility we had occasion to notice two years ago. We think it well adapted not only for an aid to the practitioner, but also as a guide to the student of practical conveyancing."-Leguleian.
