[ocr errors]

Publisher's Preface. It has been the aim of the publisher of the present edition of the Law Dictionary to vary in Dothing from the general plan of Judge Bouvier, and to make only such modifications and additions in his work as the changing conditions of the law seemed to require. The period since the death of the able author has been so fruitful, however, both in legislative enactments and judicial decisions, that pumerous alterations and additions have been rendered necessary, resulting in an aggregate increase of matter to the extent of more than fifty per cent. This new matter has been prepared by gentlemen of recognized eminence at the bar or on the bench, and peculiarly well acquainted with tbspecial topics upon which they have treated. The general editorial supervision has been perform in a very thorough and efficient manner by Daniel A. Gleason, Esq. The more useful part of Ki ham's Dictionary, which in former editions was printed as a supplement, has now been incorporated in the body of the work. Careful attention has been given to the citation of authorities, and they hare been brought down to the date of the preparation of the respective articles. By making use of a more condensed form of arrangement and of a somewhat smaller-sized type than were employed in the old editions, the contents have been increased to the extent above named without a correspond ing enlargement of the bulk of the volumes.

The publisher cannot hope that in so extensive a labor there have been no mistakes, either of omission or commission. He can only claim that he has spared neither time, labor, nor expense in the endeavor to make the book thoroughly accurate and complete; and he submits the present edition of Bouvier's Law Dictionary to the profession and the general public, trusting that the work may be found even more valuable in the future than it has been in the past.

GEORGE W. CHILDS. PHILADELPHIA, 1869. Over 100 contributors have furnished articles to this edition of Bouvier's Law Dictionary
