TO THE PRESENT AMERICAN EDITION.
The notes of Mr. Rawle to the previous edition, are believed to call attention to every point of observation important to the American student. In a field so extensive as the LAW OF REAL PROPERTY, the present editor has not found it practicable to add materially to the labors of his predecessor, without entering into details which would overburden the text and destroy the usefulness of the work as a “first book for students." He has therefore contented himself with noting the changes made by the author in the last English edition, and revising the notes with the addition of a few later authorities whenever their importance or the clearness with which they discuss the principles involved, seemed to render such addition desirable. The notes of Mr. Rawls are distinguished by the letter R.; those without signature and the portions within brackets, are by the present editor.
The paging of the last English edition has been preserved in the margin, and the references throughout the work are to this paging.
PHILADELPHIA, September, 1866.
