ADVERTISEMENT TO THE
HE rapid sale of the first edition of this book
(which was out of print within a month after its publication), has rendered necessary the issue of a second edition, and in order to make it more complete, a short summary of the whole
of the Merchant Shipping Acts (showing all the
recent alterations in the law), has been added. The present edition, therefore, comprises both the common law and the statute law relating to shipping, but nothing superfluous has been inserted to
confuse or embarrass the reader.
Sunderland, Oct., 1868.
