PREFACE TO THE FOURTH EDITION.

WITHIN a year a Fourth Edition of this Work has bern called for. As now revised and enlarged, the plan is as follows:

1. In the Introduction a general view is presented of the scope of the Conveyancing Acts, 1881 and 1882, and the Solicitors' Remuneration Act, 1881, and of the leading changes they make.

2. A full and precise Summary of the Conveyancing Acts is given, section by section, with practical Notes and cross-references. In this

In this way the effect of the Acts are set out as far as possible without needless technicality, and free from the confusion that might be caused by the multiplicity of sub-sections. To state the effect clearly saves much commentary that would otherwise be needed.

3. The Solicitors' Remuneration Act, 1881, and the General Order issued thereunder, is summarised and noted in like manner.

4. The Conveyancing Acts, the Solicitors' Remuneration Act, and the General Order are printed in

their entirety, but to every section and clause is appended a reference to the Summary and Notes.

5. A full synopsis of the new scales of charges, in the form of Tables, is added.

6. A selection of precedents, adapted to the practice under the Acts, and embracing every form in common use affected by the Acts, is supplied.

7. Lord Cranworth's Act, 1860, the Vendor and Purchaser Act, 1874, the Settled Estates Act, 1877, and the Settled Land Act, 1882 (all intimately connected with the Conveyancing Acts), are printed at length.

8. A copious Index is added.

The merit claimed for this arrangement is that the Acts respectively, instead of being broken up into detached fragments, isolated by surrounding Notes, can readily be referred to as a whole, while the Summary and Notes (like a translation and commentary) explain and illustrate their practical effect.
