Thb utility of Jones's Attorney's Book, as an epitome of conveyancing, being sufficiently established by the number of editions it has already passed through, and the number of respectable Editors by which it has been revised, no apology is necessary for the attempt which is now made, to offer a Work to the Profession, similar as to its brevity, comprehensiveness, and practical utility, but embracing a greater variety of matter more fitted for modern practice. By rejecting all superfluous repetitions, and adopting various modes of abridgment, particularly the abbreviations used in one of the editions of that work, space has been found for the admission of every Precedent and Form applicable to the ordinary transactions of lifei the greater part of which, have the recommendation of being taken from draughts of actual practice from the pens of the most eminent modern conveyancers. The Prefaces and Prefatory Observations have been compiled by the Editor, not to serve as complete treatises, but simply to direct the attention of the reader to the most important points of law connected with the subject matter of the work.
Although no ordinary portion of labour and attention has been bestowed upon this work in its passage through the press, yet the Editor regrets that, owing to its peculiar nature, it is not entirely free from typographical errors; but he has the satisfaction of being assured, that no errors have escaped the press which are in the slightest degree calculated to affect its practical usefulness, except those mentioned in the ' Errata,' the Table of Cases, and Indexes, which principally relate to the references.
