PREFACE TO THE FIFTH LONDON EDITION.

Is this Edition the text has been carefully revised, and redundant or obsolete matter has been expunged, its place having been supplied by illustrations of Legal Maxims, extracted from the most recent reported cases.

The increasing favor shown by professional and non-professional readers for this work has stimulated my endeavors to render it more worthy of their confidence.

H. B.

THE TEMPLE, April 28th, 1870.
