“Of the many editions of the Judicature Acts which have appeared, there is certainly none which can be fairly compared with it.

DOCUMENTS OF LEGAL AUTHORITY.

By SEWARD BRICE, LL.D.,

OF THE INNER TEMPLE, BARRISTER-AT-LAW,

To the vast number of people who in various ways are interested in the working of the Act, Mr. Brice's volume cannot fail to be welcome. It is well conceived and carefully executed.THE TIMES.

“This excellent compilation of the law relating to a subject of very great interest and importance it is well arranged; the practitioner will find all the material ready to his hand, Mr, Brice having spared no pains in describing the procedure as elucidated by the decisions of the Privy Council. In Mr. Brice's work the ecclesiastical practitioner and the church authorities will be provided with a reliable guide to Church Law under the Act of 1874."-Law Times.

"Dr. Brice's book upon the law relating to public worship has been, as may be supposed, specially framed for the use of clergymen, churchwardens and others, interested in the regulation of our Church services. Here there is condensed in one volume all the material for the guidance and control of public worship, and both ecclesiastics and laymen can, by aid of the index, find out at a glance the exact state of the law as interpreted by the highest authorities upon any given point; and churchwardens and others can ascertain the exact steps which should be followed by those who desire to put a stop to breaches of the law. The work deserves, and will no doubt have, a very extensive sale."-Standard.

To law students the very clear exposition of the various statutes relating to rites and sacraments, ceremonials, vestments, ornamentation, ecclesiastical remedies and punishments, the jurisdiction of the ordinary, &*c., will be of the greatest value, as well for the methodical arrangement which characterises it, as for the erudition displayed in the comments, and the clearness and

lucility of the style in which they are couched. Several authoritative enactments relating to public worship, and the various editions of the articles, are given in

extenso; and the numerous cases incidentally alluded to throughout the volume are alphabetically arranged and tabulated.”—Morning Post.

“Dr. Brice's large and learned work is a very complete manual for its purpose."--Guardian.

Dr. Bruce's book contains a great mass ef information on ecclesiastical matters, which ist at all times be valuable for reference."-THE RECORD.

We can confidently recommend the treatise to all those who are concerned in the subject. To students it will be useful as a compendium of eccle siastical law. To lawyers it will be a handy book of reference. To clergymen and parishioners it will be a valuable guide, and may perhaps prevent some useless litigation. An index of twenty-two pages, and a table of upwards of 300 cases, testify to the labour bestowed upon this treatise; but it is not a mere compilation, and only an author who has thoroughly mastered the subject could have written the book."-Law Fournal.

"The purpose of Mr. Seward Brice's treatise on · The Law Relating to Public Worship' is, as stated in the preface, to give 'a full exposition of the Law of Public Worship, in so far as it concerns the external forms and cultus enforced or merely per missible by the rules of the Church of England, special prominence being assigned to the subjects of ornaments, ceremonial,

and vestments. The work is very carefully and thoroughly done, and includes not only a clear account both of the substantive law and of the means of enforcing it, but the text of the pertinent statutes and of other documents bearing upon the matters discussed."-Dary News.

THE LAW AND PRACTICE IN BANKRUPTCY;

Comprising the Bankruptcy Act, 1869; the Debtors Act, 1869 ; the Insolvent Debtors

and Bankruptcy Repeal Act, 1869 ; together with the General Rules and Orders
in Bankruptcy, at Common Law and in the County Courts ;

With the Practice on Procedure to Adjudication, Procedure to Liquidation, Procedure to Composition, and Procedure under Debtors' Summons, Scales of Costs and

of Allowance to witnesses.

Copious Notes, References, and a very full Index. Second Edition. By HENRY PHILIP

ROCHE and WILLIAM HAZLITT, Barristers-at-Law, and Registrars of the Court
of Bankruptcy.

From the LAW JOURNAL. “The work before us also contains the Debtors Act of 1869, the Bankruptcy Repeal Act of 1869, the Absconding Debtors Act, 1869, with several other Acts and all the General Rules in Bankruptcy, printed and annotated in the same manner as the principal Act. There is also a very full collection of forms and bills of costs; but the portion of the work which is decidedly the most novel, and we imagine will prove extremely useful, is that comprised in pages 355-474, which contain an exposition by the authors on the practice on procedure to adiudication, liquidation, and composition with creditors, and on procedure under a debtors' summons. It is not often that a practising lawyer is able to turn to a book on Practice written by the judges of the parti. cular Court to which it relates, and, as it were, stamped with the seal of authority.

In conclusion, we have only to say that Messrs. Roche and Hazlitt have appended to their work a very full and copious index, and that we can cordially and conscientiously recommend it to the notice of the legal profession.

From THE LAW. “ The aim of the authors in writing this book has been to make it useful to the profession, and in this they have eminently succeeded. Bringing to their task a long and varied experience of Bankruptcy laws, they have been able, from their position as Registrars of the Court, also to acquire more knowledge of the practical working of the new Act than could well have been obtained by any other writer, however gifted and industrious. The last statute, which by itself looked so simple, has, from the number and complexity of the rules framed thereunder, probably surpassed all its predecessors in accumulating a mass of forms and ceremonies. Therefore it is that a book like the above becomes absolutely necessary, more especially to solicitors who have but a small practice in Bankruptcy. The portion of the work which to such will be found most useful, is that on the practical procedure ; where they will find plain and minute directions as to setting about the commencement of a Bankruptcy or Liquidation, and also as to its continuance and conclusion. There is also a special and carefully written chapter on Costs. There are included in the work all the statutes, rules, forms, and scales of costs, which can be wanted in a Bankruptcy case; while the Index is a book of itself, and seems unusually complete. The type and binding could not well be better. Altogether we can say of this book that it is the product of hard work, by men who know of what they write, and that it is worthy to stand beside our best text-books on the shelves of every lawyer."

From the LAW TIMES. This work is one which has naturally carried with it more weight than any other text-book, having been written by two registrars of the Court of Bankruptcy: In practice it has been found to realise the anticipations formed concerning it, in proof of which we have now in our hands a second edition. Perhaps the most valuable feature of the work is the fulness of the practical details which enable a tyro to transact his business with tolerable security. The first half of the work comprises the Bankruptcy Act and the Debtors Act, which have been carefully and ably noted with all the decisions, and the latter half is devoted mainly to practice and procedure. The Bills of Sale Act and one or two other enactments are incorporated which are frequently consulted by the bankruptcy practitioner. “A very elaborate index ends the volume.”

From the SOLICITORS' JOURNAL. “In the book before us, a reader is enabled by means of large consecutive figures at the head of each margin to reach the section and cases he requires without the trouble of referring to the index. In the hurry of daily practice this will probably be found no small advantage. In the subsequent chapters on adjudication, liquidation, composition, and debtors' summons, the arrangement adopted is the convenient one for practical purposes of tracing each consecutive step of the procedure, and welding together the provisions of the Acts, Rules, and Forms, with the substance of the cases. This appears to us to be successfully accomplished, and the book, as a whole, constitutes a useful digest of the statutory and case law. As regards the former, the work appears to contain every provision relating to or connected with the subject, including even the orders made in December, 1869, transferring business then pending. The cases are taken from a wide range of reports and include a considerable number cited from MSS. notes. The index is unusually full, combining both an analysis and index; and, lastly, the type and paper are all that can be desired.”
