The subject of Agency belongs to a comparatively recent period in our law … Agency belongs distinctively to a commercial age, and its growth has kept pace with the progress of commercial activity. It furnishes the means by which the range of individual and corporate activity is enormously increased. One person may thus have many an alter ego. A single brain may direct a hundred hands. The modern business man may be constructively present in many places and carry on diverse and widely separated industries at the same time.
The following pages have been printed to accompany the writer’s collection of Cases on Agency for use in the Department of Law of this University. Nothing has been attempted beyond the merest outlines of the subject. Explanation as well as illustration has, in general been left to be supplied by the cases.
