Extract from the American Jurist for April 1836.

“This is a very valuable work, and will form a proper companion to that already published by Mr. Roscoe, on the general subject of Evidence.—His object has been to furnish a manual for the practitioner, which he may use in the emergencies of business, and particularly of the Circuit. And we think, in the execution of this design, he has admirably succeeded. The subject is arranged in a natural and scientific order; so that the proper cases can be found in their proper places.'”

pages each.

CHITTY'S PRACTICE OF THE LAW. “The practice of the Law in all its deportments : with a view of rights, injuries, and remedies, as ameliorated by recent statutes, rules and decisions; showing the best modes of creating, perfecting, securing, and transferring rights; and the best remedies for every injury, as well by acts of parties themselves as by legal proceedings; and either to prevent or remove injuries, or to enforce specific relief or performance, or compensation ; and showing the practice in arbitrations, before justices, in Courts of Common Law, Equity, Ecclesiastical and Spiritual, Admiralty and Courts of Appeal. With new practical forms, intended as a court and circuit companion. By Joseph Chitty, Esq. of the Middle Temple, Barrister.” In three volumes of near a thousand

« We briefly characterised this book in our last number as one which no legal practitioner ought to be without, a more minute and extended examination of it (the second part of it has since appeared) has amply confirmed that judgment. Valuable as are Mr. Chitty's former labours, and highly as they are appreciated by the profession, we have no hesitation in expressing our conviction that the merits and usefulness of the present work will entitle him to claim from them a double debt of gratitude.

"On all of these subjects the author has left little information to be desired, and has in fact brought together, in one shape or other, almost all that is to be found in the two first, and much of the other two volumes of Blackstone, with the addition of the subsequent authorities, and of an almost infinite number of practical hints and directions which would be looked for in vain in the works of any other elementary writer.

" Here then our readers will admit, a wide field of practical and valuable information is traversed, and we can safely add, with a minute and patient accuracy, without which its very extent would have been an evil.”—London Law Magazine.
