BY CHARLES BARTON, JUN. OF LINCOLN'S INN, Esq.
IN THREE VOLUMES.
7, FLEET STREET, NEAR TEMPLE-BAR.
On my first appearance before the Profession as an Author, it may be expected that I should express myself fearful of being accused of temerity, in attempting the revisal of a work originally compiled by so able a practitioner as MR. WILDE ; and indeed so conscious was I of the apparent justice as well as probability of such an accusation, that I should not have ventured upon so hazardous an undertaking, but at the express request of my Father, and under his kind promise of assistance should I in any case deem it requisite ; this promise he has amply performed, and under such a sanction my veracity might be justly doubted were I to express any considerable degree of anxiety as to the success of my endeavours to render the present Edition more extensively useful than the former ones.
With a view of attaining this object, I have not merely substituted the later decisions and statutes in the room of those which have been overruled or repealed since the last Edition, but have introduced a very great number and variety of Precedents, which from my own experience, and the suggestions of others, appeared still to be wanting: a considerable portion of these will be found to relate more particularly to commercial, parochial, and county matters; in which all other collections of a similar kind, are, as it seems to me, extremely deficient.
