The object of this publication is to present to the Practitioner and others a handy and inexpensive work, comprising a COMPLETE ANNUAL DIGEST of every Case reported during each year in all the Courts, whether in the “ Law Reports," or in any other Reports, and arranged in such a form as will be most likely to prevent the possibility of any Case, on whatever subject, escaping notice.

The Digest comprises every case (up to the 7th of December, 1884) which is contained in the “ Law Reports,” “ The Law Journal," “ The Law Times,” “ The Weekly Reporter,” “Cox's Criminal Cases, “ Cababé and Ellis's Reports," “ Aspinall’s Maritime Law Cases,” “ O'Malley and Hardcastle's Election Petition Reports," “ Coltman's Registration Cases," " The Justice of the Peace," and “Neville and Macnamara’s Railway Cases.”

Notes of the points of practice arising under the New Rules of 1883, decided in Chambers, and reported in the “ Weekly Notes," “Law Journal," “ Solicitors' Journal,” and “ Law Times,” are also included.

In this year's Digest an addition has been made by inserting a note of all cases reported in the “ Weekly Notes,” and not subsequently reported in the “ Law Reports.”

All decisions of interest to the English Lawyer reported in the Irish Law Reports are included in the Digest. So also with the Scotch cases reported in the Court of Session and Justiciary Reports. Of some of the less important Scotch cases a reference only has been made to the subject matter of the decision.

References also are given to the subject-matter of AMERICAN decisions which are likely to be of use or of general interest, from “Otto's Reports” of the Supreme Court of the United States, and the “ American Reports” of decisions in Courts of last resort in the several States.

The Index contains all the references to the Reports of English Cases.

Every case followed, specially considered, or overruled, in or by English, Irish, or Scotch decisions, is contained in the table for that purpose. This table, and the list of all rules which have been under the consideration of the Courts, will also be found useful for noting up reports and text-books.

The work is brought down to the time of going to press, and references to The Times have been added where necessary.

In order to expedite the publication of the Digest, Mr. A. W. CHASTER, LL.B., Barrister-at-law, has kindly assisted in compiling the tables of cases, &c., at the commencement of the work.
