Excerpt: PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION. IN this edition the first chapter, by Prof. Maitland, is new. In Book II., c iI. 12, on 'Corporations and Churches (formerly 'Fictitious Persons '), and c. iii. 8, on ' The Borough, have been recast. There are no other important alterations: but we have to thank our learned critics, and especially Dr Brunner of Berlin, for various observations by which we have endeavoured to profit. We have thought it convenient to note the paging of the first edition in the margin.
