Note to the Second Edition: “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 particularly to supply illustration 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.”

Note to the Third Edition: “While the general features remain the same, the number of cases in this edition has been considerably increased in the hope that the book may prove reasonably adequate in itself to exhibit the most important aspects of the law of Damages.”
