OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. “In the time that has elapsed, • Frost on Patents' has securely taken its place as the leading text-book on the subject.

To all, whether lawyers or patent agents, who require assistance in the law of patents, Mr. Frost's book will be welcome as a mine of valuable and accurate information.”-- Law Times.

PREFACE.

In this book I have endeavoured to give a concise statement of the nature and effect of the alterations in, and additions to, the statute law of patents and designs, which were made by the legislature during the last session of Parliament.

I have not directly dealt with case law. About ninety-eight per cent. of the provisions of the repealed Acts and Rules relating to patents and designs are re-enacted. The case law relative to the re-embodied provisions is, as regards patents, fully treated in the recent edition of my larger book on Patent Law and Practice, to which I have given references where appropriate. So far as the new provisions are concerned there is, of course, no case law at present. The time is, therefore, not opportune for a fresh edition of my former work.

The tables in the Introduction will enable the reader, at a glance, to transpose the references in my “Patent Law and Practice” to the former Acts and Rules into terms of the present Act and Rules.

ROBERT FROST.
