The General Principles of the Law of Contract in the Form of Rules
Excerpt from The General Principles of the Law of Contract in the Form of Rules: For the Use of StudentsThis work is an attempt to state methodically the general principles relating to the Formation, Interpretation, and Discharge of Contract. The statements are in the form of rules, followed by such comments, reasons, and illustrations as seemed suitable to bring out clearly before the mind of the student the import of each proposition.While the work is primarily designed for the use of students, I trust that the practicing lawyer will find it to be a serviceable compilation (in the nature of a Code) of the principal rules of the law of contract.In the preparation of these rules I have constantly consulted the proposed New York Civil Code, the Indian Contract Act, and the able treatises of Leake, Pollock, and Anson. My aim has been to embody the fundamental principles of contract in language, clear, concise, and accurate; and in the endeavor to accomplish this purpose I have freely availed myself of the labors of others. But each proposition is supported by the authority of adjudged cases, taken for the most part from the more accessible of the American Reports, and selected with a view to force of reasoning and pertinency of illustration.I believe that the principles of contract can, and at some future day will be satisfactorily codified. May I not express the hope that this elementary work will contribute in some degree toward hastening that day?About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
