BY THE PUBLISHES!.
In the present edition of Phillip's Law of Evidence, the decisions in American books of reports published subsequent to the last edition, have been consulted, and notes therefrom inserted with the notes of the former editor without distinction. The present edition, likewise contains references to decisions in the English Courts, subsequent to the third London edition, and up to the time of publishing. The extended circulation of the last edition of this work has induced the publishers to spare no pains to render the present edition complete. And to enable the profession without difficulty to refer to the last American edition, they have introduced the paging of that edition in the present, notwithstanding the great extension of the work by the author in the third London'edition.
