CHARLES EDWARD POLLOCK,
ESQUIRES, OF THE INNER TEMPLE, BARRISTERS-AT-LAW.
THE HON. BARON POLLOCK,
OF THE MIDDLE TEMPLE, ESQ.,
and Recorder of Bradford.
IN TIVO VOLUMES.
The First Edition of this work was published in 1853. It formed the labour of two young barristers, who were intimately connected both by private and professional friendship, at a time when business either in Court or Chambers had scarcely begun to find them occupation. The Chapters were composed for the most part alternately by one of the Authors, and were settled by both in conference.
Those who remember the late Mr. Frederio P. Maude and his earlier writings know what was likely to be the character of his work. His clear style, accurate expression and fine appreciation of nice distinctions, all evidenced a mind which, having amply enjoyed classics, ancient and modern, brought accomplishments of no mean order to the study and elucidation of English law. His pen never failed to produce in a form, as pleasing as the subject would admit of, a result thorough and reliable.
The book was very favourably received by the Profession, and by others interested in the law relating to Merchant Shipping ; and in 1861 a Second Edition was called for, which was followed by a Third in 1864.
In 1870, the Authors had made great progress in the preparation of a new Edition. Its completion was, however, stayed by the death of Mr. Maude, and other causes. It was not till five or six years later that the work was taken up anew by the surviving Author and Mr. Gainsford Bruce, who had been an intimate friend of Mr. Maude.
