THE SCIENCE OF LAW. Fifth edition. Crown 8vo,
cloth, 5s. “The object of this work is, inter alia, to bring before the student them results of the investigations and labours of Bentham, Austin, and Sir Henry Maine, so far as they contribute to the advancement of legal knowledge. ... Much would remain unsaid though we discussed the author's very interesting volume at far greater length; but this we can say, that it does 'open out to novices an unsuspected region of interest,' and that we hope with Mr. Amos it will whet their curiosity and stimulate them to further research.'"-Law Times.
