PREFACE.

No excuse for offering this work to the profession is necessary. It has always been regarded not only as a standard, but also as one of the most authoritative and masterly legal text-books ever published, and has been cited by our courts, with approbation, in hundreds of cases. Other works upon the subject have been written, both in this country and England, but none of them have ever covered the topic involved, so exhaustively, or presented the principles upon which the law of partnership rests, so clearly and logically, as has been done by Mr. COLLYER in this work.

In the preparation of this edition I have embodied in the text and notes all that is valuable in Lindley, Dixon, Bissett and Gow, indicating what is taken from each, and, in addition, have given quite full American notes. There are some portions of the original text that might, perhaps, have been omitted with propriety, but, so far as my experience goes, I have found that the profession generally prefer that the pruning knife shall not be used upon works of such excellence as Mr. COLLYER's, therefore I have given the text entire, with the single exception of the chapter upon Practice in Bankruptcy. I have divided the text into sections, with head-lines, and done all that could be to facilitate ready reference. The index is very full, and the table of cases embraces many thousands more than are cited in the original work.

Confident that the work will be found valuable to the profession, I submit it to their criticism.

H. G. WOOD. ALBANY, July 4, 1878.
