a systematic statement of existing law relating to it, and lastly a criticism upon every part of it. The principal alterations made in the present edition consist in the omission of certain matter which I have transferred to the History of the Criminal Law, and in the addition of references to the Draft Code of 1879, and also to the History of the Criminal Law. I have also given the effect of the few cases on the substantive Criminal Law which have been decided, and of such statutes as have been passed since 1877. I have omitted an Introduction discussing the subject of Codification, as its possibility can no longer be reasonably doubted. Some remarks on the subject will however be found in Chapter XXXIV. Vol. III. p. 347—67 of my History. J. F. STEPHEN. 32, De Vere Gardens, Kensington. TABLE OF CASES CITED. . . . . . . A. Barthelemy, R. v. Bateman, R. v. 268 Abraham's Case. 242 Batty, R. v. .
