PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION.
This Abridgment is primarily for the use of the pupils of the Sprague Correspondence School of Law, and was made with special reference to the needs of persons who are entering upon the study of the law, and of such as are reviewing the Commentaries.
The plan has been to omit the greater part of the obsolete, historical, and argumentative matter; to print in type, smaller than that of the text, comments upon such matter as is omitted, or brief statements of such matter; to separate and emphasize the divisions of the text by “side heads;" and to give synopses where it is important that the student should have a condensed and connected view of a book, chapter or section. A short life of Sir William Blackstone precedes the text, and translations of the Latin and French occurring in the text, a short bibliography of the Commentaries, and a table of the important dates in the history of English Law follows it.
WILLIAM C. SPRAGUE, DETROIT, Mich., May 1st, 1892.
