The aim of this work is to present to the profession a full view of the law of corporations, as now determined by the leading courts of England and the United States, in as brief a space as is consistent with accuracy and clearness of statement. To this end, an effort has been made to discard all obsolete law on the one hand, and to avoid all disquisitions as to what the law ought to be, on the other. In plan and execution, no pains have been spared to produce a work that will economize the time and labor of the busy lawyer, and furnish him a safe guide in the investigation of questions constantly arising out of the transactions of corporate bodies. And whatover demerits may mar the execution of the undertaking, it is confidently believed that they are more than counterbalanced by the advantages incident to the plan adopted. In the hope that its practical usefulness will be fairly proportioned to the labor bestowed upon it, the work is submitted to the judgment of a candid profession.
