PREFACE TO SEVENTH EDITION.
This Manual, prepared in 1875 as a compilation of the statues and rules regulating procedure in the courts of the United States, contained brief references to some of the decisions construing them. Having passed through five editions in that form it was entirely recast in 1883, the notes of cases increasing its bulk from 447 to 970 pages. It has been again enlarged by the addition of all statutes relating to procedure in Federal courts, and an appendix of additional notes of cases, bringing the statutes down to December 1, 1888, while the notes include the decisions in volume 127 U.S. Reference to the new matter will be found both in the body of the work and in the
SAN FRANCISCO, December 1, 1888.
PREFACE TO EIGHTH EDITION.
This, the eighth edition, is wholly revised and is now substantially a new work, embodying in a much enlarged form all that is still applicable in former editions, together with the additional matter gleaned from later adjudications of the courts and all the statutory enactments now in force, including those of the first session of the Fifty-second Congress.
For the insertion of the latest cases while the work was passing through the press, the proofreading and index to this edition, acknowledgment is hereby made of the valuable services of MR. CHAS. T. BOONE.
