PREFACE TO VOLUME XXV.
This twenty-fifth volume completes the series of “Ruling Cases” as projected.
Each volume has been brought up to the date of going to press, but in order to bring the whole work up to date of its completion, it is necessary to supplement the twentyfive volumes by an “Addendum.” This, with a consolidated table of cases and an index of subject-matters, is in course of preparation and will be published shortly.
The series thus completed and supplemented will, it is hoped, furnish the practitioner with a library of case law sufficient for his current use; and with the help of the table of cases and index he will readily find the authorities upon the point in question, or at least enough to facilitate his further research in a larger library.
The acknowledgment is here repeated of the kindness of those who have allowed the use for this work of copyright reports. To the Council of Law Reporting our thanks are especially due for the permission to use their reports, without which the choice of reports of ruling cases would have been inconveniently restricted.
