best modes of creating, perfecting, securing, and transferring rights; and the best
remedies for every injury, as well by acts of parties themselves, as by legal pro-
ceedings; and either to prevent or remove injuries, or to enforce specific relief or
performance, or compensation; and showing the practice in arbitrations before
justices; in Courts of Common Law, Equity, Ecclesiastical and Spiritual, Admi-
ralty, and Courts of Appeal. With new practical forms, intended as a court and
circuit companion, by Joseph Chitty, Esq. of the Middle Temple, Barrister.” In
four volumes.

“ It is the only work, of modern day, that really presents, as it professes, a connected view of the whole system of the civil administration of justice, in every department, as it now exists.-Warren's Law Studies, 367.

Mr. Gilpin has performed the duty of reporter with judgment and ability.”American Jurist.

GRESLEY'S EQUITY EVIDENCE. A Treatise on the Law of Evidence in the Courts of Equity. By Richard Newcombe Gresley, Esq. Barrister at Law.

" A work much wanted, compiled with much labor and research.”—London Law Magazine.

“ This is one of the best Law Books which has been recently issued from the English press." — American Jurist, Jan. 1838.

An abridgment of the Law of Nisi Prius, by P. Brady Leigh, Esq., of the Inner Temple, Barrister at Law, in 2 vols.; with notes and references to the American cases, decided subsequently to those referred to by Mr. Wharton's edition of Selwyn's Nisi Prius, by George Sharswood, Esq., of the Philadelphia Bar.

The London Legal Observer concludes a notice of this work in the following “The author states his design to have been the production of a work, treating of this branch of of the Law with more minute accuracy than any existing publication, and to introduce into his compilation every point and case of practical importance, relating to the subject which it embraces. This design, we think, he has satisfactorily fulfilled.

SMITH'S PRACTICE OF THE COURT OF CHANCERY. " A Treatise on the Practice of the Court of Chancery. With an Appendix of Forms and Precedents of Costs, adapted to the last new orders; by John Sidney Smith, of the Six Clerks' Office."

First American from the second London edition, revised and enlarged. In 2 vols. 8vo. 1287 pages. Nicklin & Johnson, 1839.

“Of the various law publications that have recently issued from the press, we know of no work of greater importance to the legal profession than the one above named; it fully meets the demand that has long existed for a complete, accurate and comprehensive treatise upon the rules and forms of practice in Courts of Equity. Among all the valuable and elementary books upon Equity Jurisprudence, there cannot be found one that is capable of fully supplying the place of the work before us-nor scarcely one that cannot better be dispensed with by the Chancery practitioner. No solicitor who consults his own convenience in the discharge of his professional duties, ought to be without so valuable an auxiliary to his labors as Smith's Chancery Practice.

“ The arrangement of this work is admirably lucid and perspicuous, and gives a very full and comprehensive view of the important subject of which it treats. In addition to the perfect outline it embraces, of the rules and principles of Chancery practice, it contains all the forms and precedents that are necessary to be observed in Equity proceedings, and also many valuable modern precedents, that can be found in no other book."-Baltimore Patriot,
