The following selection of cases in the law of Damages has been made primarily for use in connection with the lectures upon that subject given in the Law Department of the University of Michigan. The purpose has been partly to supply illustrations of the application of principles referred to in the lectures, and partly to supplement the lectures by rounding out the view of certain fields not otherwise completely developed. Arbitrary, but inexorable, considerations of size and price have determined the scope of the selection; and, for reasons perhaps sufficiently obvious, preference has been given, when possible, to cases which have appeared in the National Reporter System. It is, however, due to the publishers to say that, with respect to both of the considerations above mentioned, their attitude has been constantly generous. The cases, as a role, are not annotated, and they have usually been reproduced entire, although some parts of them may not be germane to the subject of Damages.
