THIS Fifth Edition of Smith's Lectures on the Law
of Contracts contains the text of Mr. Smith as published in the First Edition, with such alterations and additions as the changes in the law seemed to the Editor to require, and omitting a few paragraphs which were congruous only to oral lectures. Amongst these are, in many instances, included short accounts of the cases cited by Mr. Smith-additions which seemed necessary, in order to supply examples of the rules enunciated, and in order to make the Lectures as printed resemble those which were originally delivered by the Author. It was thought desirable, for facility of reading, to introduce these additions into the text.
Although the plan of this book renders it necessary to exclude from the text all but the most important and suggestive cases, it will be found that nearly all the cases illustrating the leading propositions in the work, are cited in the notes. A full Index has been added.
