SELECTION OF LEADING CASES
MERCANTILE AND MARITIME
BY OWEN DAVIES TUDOR,
OF THE MIDDLE TEMPLE, ESQ., BARRISTER AT LAW.
AUTHOR OF 'A SELECTION OF LEADING CASES IN EQUITY, ETC.
JUN 24 1981
The plan of this selection of Leading Cases is like that adopted in similar collections. Cases frequently cited in our Courts, or in which some important principle was first enunciated in clear and decisive terms, are first chosen, and to these are appended Notes, in which an attempt is made to develope the principles laid down in the cases, great care being at the same time taken to notice the recent authorities.
The Cases in this work may be divided into two important divisions; the first, relating to ordinary mercantile law in time of peace; the second, relating to the effect of war, and especially of maritime war, upon the property and contracts of merchants.
In the first class of Cases will be found principally the judgments of Lord Hardwicke, C., Lord Mansfield, C. J., Eyre, C. J., Lawrence, J., Lord Eldon, C., Sir Wm. Grant, M. R., Lord Redesdale, C., Lord Ellenborough, C. J., Lord Tenterden, C. J., Lord Brougham, C., Lord Abinger, C. B., and Parke, B. (now Lord Wensleydale),-judges than whom the authority of none can be higher in all questions relating to mercantile law.
