Excerpt from A Compendium of the Law of Real and Personal Property: Connected With Conveyancing; For the Use of Students and PractitionersThe object of the following attempt, which was commenced many years ago, is, to supply a want which the writer has personally and very greatly felt ever since the time when he commenced the study of the law.It is intended as a text book of a general, but not of a merely elementary character, for the use of students, and as a help to practitioners upon the points most needful to be borne in mind in ordinary practice.The endeavour of the writer has been, to embody, under a concise and perspicuous arrangement, in accurate terms, and in the smallest possible compass consistently with clearness, such points in the law of real and personal property, connected with conveyancing, as are necessary or the most expedient to be generally known and constantly borne in mind, as distinguished from those points which may be safely and with comparative convenience left for investigation when the occasion arises.It is extremely difficult, indeed impossible, to draw the exact line in this respect; but such has been the principle of selection, although perhaps he may have inserted some matter that he might have properly omitted, and omitted some that he ought to have inserted.Upon this principle, he has, on the one hand, excluded all antiquarian and theoretical, and indeed every other kind of disquisition, - a mass of obsolete law, - a variety of unsettled questions, - all detailed abstracts of cases, - and an immense number of points and cases which he did not consider as of general application, or necessary to be retained in the mind, if it were possible to remember them: while, on the other hand, he has been especially anxious to insert those points which affect drafting, as being the points of all others the least capable of being safely left for investigation pro re nata; such, for instance, as cases of construction of common or not unfrequent occurrence. And hence many points have been inserted, not for the purpose of enabling the practitioner to form an opinion without further research, but chiefly for the purpose of putting him on his guard when engaged in preparing deeds and wills, so as to save him from mistakes into which he might otherwise fall, or from giving rise to doubts and questions.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
