PREFACE.

This Work does not profess to be an exhaustive treatise on the law of libel, but merely a useful and practical hand-book on the Law of Newspaper Libel, and is primarily designed to meet the requirements of those connected with the Press. I have stated the law in the form of propositions followed by explanatory notes, and have discussed the various difficult and complicated questions which arise on the construction of the Law of Libel Amendment Act, 1888. The date of every case cited is given, and, so far as I know, a reference to every report of it.

I have only treated the subject of procedure incidentally, or where it called for special notice. Believing, however, that it might be useful, I have inserted in Appendix A. a short sketch of the proceedings before a stipendiary magistrate, or two justices of the peace. Appendix B. contains the text of all the statutes bearing on the law of libel in its relation to the press, together with references to the particular pages at which each section is dealt with, which will, I trust, add to the value of the Work.
