EMDEN'S LAW RELATING TO Building Leases and Building Contracts,

THE IMPROVEMENT OF LAND BY, AND THE

CONSTRUCTION OF, BUILDINGS.

By ALFRED EMDEN, of the Inner Temple, Esq., Barrister-at-Law.

“The present treatise of Mr. Emden deals with the subject in an exhaustive manner, which leaves nothing to be desired.”—The Times, March 14th.

“It is obvious that the number of persons interested in the subject of building is no small one. To supply the wants of this cla s by providing a treatise devo kindred matters has been accordingly the main object of Mr. Emden's labours. We are able on the whole to say with confidence that his efforts deserve reward. His arrangement of the subject is clear and perspicuous. ... It may be said without hesitation that they have been dealt with in a manner which merits high commendation.”-Law Times.

“This is a careful digest of a branch of the law which, so far as we know, has not yet been fully treated. ... The book seems to us a very complete and satisfactory manual, alike for the lawyer as for the architect and the builder.'--Solicitors' Journal.

Mr. Emden has obviously given time and labour to his task, and therefore will save time and labour to those who happen to be occupied in the same field of enquiry."-Law Journal.

In this work Mr. Emden has co'lected and systematically arranged a mass of legal lore relating tɔ Building Leases, Building Contracts, and generally to the improvement of land by buildings and their construction. The lawyer, the architect, and the contractor will here find brought into a focus and readily available information which would, but for this convenient various quarters, '-Law Magazine.

“It may safely be recommended as a practical text-book and guide to all people whose fortune or misfortune it is to be interested in the construction of buildings and other works.”-Saturday Review.

In such cases it is serviceable to possess a book like Mr. Emden's on 'The Law of Building Leases. Building Contracts, and Buildings.' The subjects, it is needless to say, are difficult, but the exposition of them is sufficiently plain to be comprehended by every intelligent layman. Mr. Enden's book is incom, parably the best among those which are professedly intended for the use of architects, builders, agents, as well as lawyers . . . throughout the pages there is not a paragraph to be discovered which is not perfectly clear.”- The Architect.

"Mr. Emden's very useful handbook, supplies a desideratum long felt 1 y lawyers, architects, and others engaged in preparing leases, contracts, and in building operations generally. The work is well printed, and marginal references are given throughout.”-Building News.

“To supply this want is the writer's object in publishing this work, and we have no hesitation in expressing our opinion that it will be found valuable by several distinct classes of persons. . .. It seems to us a good and useful book, and we recommend the purchase of it without hesitation.”—The Builder,

THE PRACTICE

IN

WINDING-UP COMPANIES.

A CONCISE AND PRACTICAL TREATISE UPON THE LAW AND PRACTICE RELATING TO THE WINDING-UP OF COMPANIES FROM THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE WINDING-UP PROCEEDINGS TO DISSOLUTION;

WITH

FORMS FOR USE IN WINDING-UP, AND PRECEDENTS OF

BILLS OF COSTS, By ALFRED EMDEN, of the Inner Temple, Esq., Barrister-at-Law,

AUTHOR OF

The Law relating to Building Leases, Building Contracts, and Building,etc.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.

“The authorities are brought down to date, and the whole work is thoroughly well done.... We have rarely met with a work in which so much pains have been taken not only to set forth the whole of the law and practice to which it relates, but to do so in the most lucid and concise manner. The book will be of great assistance to all who are concerned in the Winding-up of Companies, particularly to those who are comparatively new to the work. If the practitioner goes wrong with Mr. Einden's book in his hand it will be his own fault." -Law Times.

We think the arrangement of this book is very good. Each step in winding-up proceedings is traced ... The statutes are printed at length in the Appendix. . There is a very good time table, and also a convenient tabulated summary of the leading cases upon the liability of contributories. The collection of precedents is large, and includes precedents of bills of costs. .... The work is brought completely up to date. With regard to the treatment of the very numerous cases with which company law abounds, it is always intelligent, and the style is easy and perspicuous."-Law Journal.

Mr. Emden is already well-known as a legal a'thor, and his book on the winding-up of companies will, we think, increase his reputation. This treatise is judiciously confined to the important branch of company law which relates to 'winding-up'; and the author is thereby enabled, within the compass of a moderate volume, to supply the practitioner with a very complete work. In arrangement, little is left to be desired : and, by variations of type and marginal references, the eye is assisted in its search for any particular subject. The appendix of forms and the precedents of bills of costs cannot fail to be practically useful."--Solicitors' Journal.

“Mr. Emden. ... has compiled an admirable treatise on 'The Practice in Winding-up Companies.' In this volume he has very successfully reduced into a concise and thoroughly practical form, the general principles upon which the law and practice relating to winding-up are now admin stered and regulated. The completion of his laborious task meets a decided want by providing an authoritative handbook and work of reference which is complete in every respect. A collection of precedents of the most comprehensive aracter accompanies the book, which is a model of lucidity in matter and arrangement.”—Citizen.

Emden's book on the winding-up of companies seems likely to be useful. The subject is a special
It gives an exhaustive account of the law in a convenient and avai able form.”-Saturday
