This work is intended to serve three purposes: (1) To form a text book for the use of students in law schools, and of others who are under competent instruction; (2) To guide private students ii? their investigation of the rules and definitions of the law; (3) To render students familiar with some of the leading treatises upon the principal topics of the law.

A DIGEST OF THE LAW OF EVIDENCE. By Sir James Fitzjames Stephen, K.C.S.L, a Judge of the High Court of Justice, Queen's Bench Division. From the Fourth English Edition. With Notes and Additional Illustrations to the Present Time, chiefly from American Cases, including those of John Wilder May, late Chief Justice of the Municipal Court of the City of Boston, author of "The Law of Insurance/' &c.

One Volume. 12mo. 251 pages. Leatherette, $2.50 net; lavsheep, $3.00 net.

This edition is a full and exact reprint of the Fourth English, revis* by the author in 1881; and in bringing the work down to date (1886) and adding references to American cases it has been found necessary to entirely reset the type, and the present edition is therefore printed from new electrotype plates. Many editions of the work have been published in America, but the present will be found to be the most useful, as it includes the very valuable notes prepared by the late John Wilder May, author of "The Law of Insurance/' &c., for the previous edition, — of which several thousand copies were sold,—Judge May's notes being supplemented by a careful selection of the most important references and decisions to date; and it is hoped that the work — of which its distinguished author said, "Short as it is, I believe it will be found to contain practically the whole of the law on the subject" — may be in its present form more serviceable to the profession than ever before.
