When this task was undertaken the writer believed that there was a real need for an American book upon the law of Sale. In the long time that he bas been at work, various contributions to the subject have been made by others, so that it is possible that the need, if it ever existed, has long since been supplied. The writer, however, whether wisely or unwisely, has persisted in his undertaking, and if bis work shall prove to have a value in some degree commensurate with the labor spent upon it, he will be content.
