PREFACE

TO THE

PRESENT EDITION.

The favourable reception which the former impressions of the following work have met with from the Profession, has encouraged the Editor to publish a sixth, and as he hopes, an improved Edition: if found useful in the form in which it was originally submitted by the late Mr. Turner, the Editor flatters himself it will be found not less so in the present shape. The whole has been re-cast and very carefully revised; many corrections, and very considerable alterations, have been made both in matter and arrangement, and some subjects have been introduced, which had before escaped attention. To notice all of them from the manner in which they are dispersed throughout every part of the work, would greatly exceed the limits of a preface: whatever may be the merits of the work, the size has been considerably increased by additional heads of practice, numerous precedents of proceedings, and a voluminous accession of such cases as the Editor has been able to collect, since the publication of the last Edition; upwards of four hundred adjudged cases of practice have been scattered over fourteen hundred pages of letterpress; and to render the present volumes more deserving of attention, a very accurate Index is subjoined. With these additions, corrections, and improvements, the present Edition is submitted to the candour of the Profession: and the Editor, conscious of the imperfection of the work, and reviewing what he has done, is apprehensive that there are those to whom his labours may appear to have been exerted, only to increase occasion of censure, without hope or expectation of praise.
