Edition. Containing all the Statutes of Practical Utility in the Civil and Criminal Administration of Justice
to the Present Time. By W. N. WELSBY and EDWARD BEAVAN, Esqrs., Barristers at Law.
** In the debate on the proposed consolidation of the Statutes, on the 9th February, 1854, Lord Campbell said, “that the Statutes at Large extended to about fifty volumes folio, but all the Statutes which were usually required by lawyers for reference might be found in three octavo volumes compiled by his learned friend Mr. Welsby. When he (Lord Campbell) was upon the bench he always had this work by him, and no Statutes were ever referred to by the Bar which he could not find in it."
This important Work will be continued annually, by an Edition of the Statutes, arranged on a similar plan, with a full Index, being published shortly after the close of each Session. Edited by E. BEAVAX, Esq. The first of these Supplements, containing the Statutes of 1854, is now ready, price 98. 60. sewed.
