TO THE PURCHASER.
fuis book which we now offer you is emphatically a manual for the guidance of any and every man in business transactions, in a manner Přescribed by law and the usages of trade. But in addition to this, it embodies an array of practical information which makes it a most valuablo reference-book to the business man; and we assume that the world is not in possession of its equal in point of FUÁLNESS and conRECTNESS. It has been prepared by a lawyer of high character and standing in the city of New York, whose professional reputation is a sufficient guaranty for its accuracy, assisted by a business-man well acquainted with the wants of the community, which this work is intended to supply.
In presenting its claims to public favor, we do not address ourselves as is usual " to the Reader," but “to the Purchaser," for we do not expect any man to read it through, but to use it as a reference-book, not only that his business may be done in a form that shall secure his legal rights, but also to ascertain what protection the laws of the states afford him in the prosecution of his business. When we ask the business-man to purchase it, we expect him to inquire, « WILL IT PAY?" we answer

The special State Laws have been compiled at great labor and expense, from the latest statutes of the various States, so far as they could be reached, and will be found more complete and reliable than anything now before the public.
If we have now made it plain that it will be a valuable book to you, we ask you to buy it, not simply to promote our interest, but because we give you in return that information which every man ought to have at his command.
