Excerpt from Leading Cases Upon the Law of Torts This collection of cases upon the Law of Torts is intended to supplement and illustrate the statements of legal principles which are set forth in the various treatises upon this subject. Object lessons, showing the application of principles, are as efficacious in the study of law as in the study of other branches of learning, and such lessons are afforded by the actual decisions made by the courts in specific instances. Such decisions may also exhibit the growth and development of legal doctrines. The aim has been to select the most valuable and important cases that could be found, giving a comprehensive view of the particular point or question discussed, and presenting the actual living law of to-day as the result of the long process of adjudication in England and in this country. Hence the volume comprises modern cases to a large extent, and in some instances these are among the most recent that have been issued. The cases are printed in the same general form in which they appear in the regular reports, viz., with head-notes, statements of facts, and sometimes arguments of counsel, prefixed to the opinions. Running head-lines in bold-faced type, also, direct the attention of the reader to the principle treated of in the particular case that follows. Numerous other valuable cases are also cited after each of those that are printed in full, so that the reader can extend his researches more widely, if he so desires. These cited cases are also among the most important authorities upon the various points discussed. Note To Second Edition. In this edition cases of special value and interest that have been decided since the first edition was issued have been added to the text, or have been substituted, in some instances, for cases of less importance which the earlier edition contained. Extensive notes have also been appended to many of the cases, citing the recent authorities very fully and exhibiting the present condition of the law upon the various topics treated. It is hoped that the value of the book will be found much increased. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
