COLLECTED AND ARRANGED
JAMES W. CLARK, M.A., .
OF LINCOLN'S INN; ONE OF HIS MAJESTY'S COUNSEL; LATE FELLOW OF TRINITY HALL,
CLARK ON SEARCHES."
This collection of elementary forms has been made at the suggestion of my learned friend Sir Howard Elphinstone, who, from his experience as Reader in the Law of Real and Personal Property in the Inns of Court, has formed the opinion that such & manual would be found useful by teachers of law and their pupils. It is hoped that students may derive from these forms some help in reading text books on the law of real property. A book of this kind cannot lay claim to originality, and my work has for the most part been merely to set forth, with & few slight variations, some of the simpler precedents which will be found in approved collections, such as “ Key and Elphinstone's Compendium," Davidson's “ Concise Precedents,” and Mr. Wolstenholme's Precedents.
I have to express my grateful appreciation of the generous kindness which has allowed me to make use of the works referred to for the purposes of this little book, which, it need hardly be said, is not designed for use in practice, but merely as an aid to study. C.P.C.
