The present volume begins a New Series of the Lawyers' Reports Annotated. All that has made the former series valuable will characterize the New Series. The only change is by addition. The exhaustive annotation which has been characteristic of these Reports, and which has won for them the extraordinary appreciation of the legal profession, will be equally conspicuous in the new Reports. No time or expense will be spared in the preparation of the monographic Subject Notes. In these all the authorities on the question will be analyzed, compared, and marshaled in the light of the principles which govern them. These exhaustive Subject Notes will be still the great feature of the annotation, and will be carried to an extent even greater than in the past.
Without in any way superseding any of the exhaustive Subject Notes which characterize these Reports, a new feature will be added in the annotation, by brief Case Notes, of all the remaining cases. These Case Notes are for those cases only that, except for this new feature, would be unannotated. Each of these Case Notes, without attempting the exhaustiveness of the monographic Subject Notes, may be relied upon to make a valuable addition to the case by showing its status with respect to the general principles on the subject, or by throwing upon it the light of other kindred decisions. Brief as they may be, they are made with a thoroughness of research that involves great expense.
The New Series will contain about 1,200 cases per year, in six volumes of not less than 1,250 pages each. This will very nearly double the number of cases that have hitherto been published in these Reports.
With this simple statement of the facts, this first volume is submitted to the profession, with full confidence that the great favor which has been given to the Lawyers' Reports Annotated will continue toward a new series which preserves every feature that has made those Reports valuable, and changes thein only by signal enlargement and improvement.
