Reprint of the first edition. Beale's treatise ranks withWilliston on Contracts and Wigmore on Evidence as one of theundisputed classics of twentieth-century American law.

In the second place, it gives us thematured conclusions of the outstanding American student onthe subject, conclusions arrived at and expressed in theprevailing philosophy of the legal profession" (WalterWheler Cooke, Columbia Law Review 35: 1154-1162).Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
