SUCH GENERAL STATUTES TO DATE.

Ree. teft. 7,1844
URING the ten years in the course of which the volumes of the Revised
Statutes of Indiana, as published by the firm of E. B. MYERS & Com
PANY, have been common property of the people, the members of the legal profession have become familiar with the arrangement of their contents and the means of their ready use. A continuance of such arrangement in the publication of the statutes enacted since the last edition of those statutes, bringing the laws to date, is but the presentation of a new acquaintance worthy to be received as an old friend. This volume is uniform in arrangement, dress and make up with the prior issues.
The copious annotations which were added at the end of chapters in those editions are continued from the point where they concluded at the date of the publication of the edition of 1888. They are brought down, to the latest published expression of the supreme court of the state, to the day of publication. The result is that the three volumes together contain all constructions, explanations and illustrations of the several statutes in force from the point at which the official revisers left the work of annotation. In this volume the annotations are indexed in connection with the references to their subject matter,
The titles of the several statutes are given complete and appended to each title is a minute of the date of passage, the time of taking effect and any peculiarity of the passage. Acts declared unconstitutional are pointed out by note; references to sections of former statutes are made in the text and, generally, it may be said no personal exertion has been spared in conforming the volume to the ready convenience and unstudied use of the members of the bar.
