** This Edition is printed in larger type than former Editions, and with increased facilities for Reference.

"The codification of the Statutes, unlike the codification of the Common Law, presents indubitable advantages. The collection of the late Mr. Chitty and his subsequent editors is practically no less authoritative, and rendered more useful by the addition of commentary and decided cases, than an official code would be. The interval of 20 years hitherto observed between the editions of this work since its first appearance in 1825 has been conveniently shortened to 15 between the last edition and that now before us. It does not take long, in an era when legislation does everything for us and we do nothing for ourselves, for a roll of statutes to accumulate sufficient to make the addenda almost as voluminous as the body of the work. The Acts relating to Bankruptcy, Married Women's Property, Shipping, the Judicature, Bills of Sale, Artisans' Dwellings, and Public Worship are only a small sample of the important legislation which the new edition embodies. It was too late, however, to include the enactments of this year otherwise than in an appendix. The four volumes of the previous edition have been swollen to six; but the increase in bulk is amply compensated by a larger type and generally-increased usefulness. It is needless to enlarge on the value of "Chitty's Statutes to both the Bar and to solicitors, for it is attested by the experience of many years. It only remains to point out that Mr. Lely's work in bringing up the collection to the present time is distinguished by care and judgment. The difficulties of the editor were chiefly those of selection and arrangement. A very slight laxness of rule in including or excluding certain classes of Acts would materially affect the size and compendiousness of the work. Still more important, however, is the way in which the mechanical difficulties of arrangement are met. The Statutes are compiled under sufficiently comprehensive titles, in alphabetical order. Mr. Lely, moreover, supplies us with three indices-the first, at the head of each title, to the enactments comprised in it; secondly, an index of Statutes in chronological order; and, lastly, a general index. By these cross references research into every branch of law governed by the Statutes is made easy both for lawyer and layman."-The Times, November 13, 1880.

"A very satisfactory edition of a time-honoured and most valuable work, the trusty guide of present, as of former, judges, jurists, and of all others connected with the administration or practice of the law."-Justice of the Peace, October 30, 1880.

"The practitioner has only to take down one of the compact volumes of Chitty, and he has at once before him all the legislation on the subject in hand."—Solicitors' Journal, November 6, 1880.
