“So exhaustive and complete a treatise cannot fail to take its place as a vade mecum of the practical lawyer."- Aberdeen Herald. M'Laren on Wills and Succession.

The Law of Scotland in relation to Wills and Succession, including the subjects of Intestate Succession, and the Construction of Wills, Entails, and Trust Settlements. By John M'LAREN, Esq.,

Advocate. In Two large Vols., royal 8vo. Price £3, 3s. "No book of this rank has been published since the death of Professor George Joseph Bell, except the works of Mr Fraser, Mr Dickson, and Professor Montgomerie Bell. It is high praise to Mr M'Laren that his treatise is not inferior in excellence to any one of them.”—Journal of Jurisprudence.

"Dr M'Laren must trust to any character that we may have gained for honesty and independence in the expression of our views for the authority of the verdict which we very willingly pronounce in his favour. If we add that these volumes have everywhere the stamp of scholarship, and the sign, not only of professional, but of general culture, we but make an acknowledgment that has been most justly earned. Mr M'Laren makes no claim to philosophical authorship, in the strict sense of the word, but as a scientific expositor of his subject he takes the very highest rank."-Scottish Law Reporter.

The Practice of the Sheriff-Courts in Scotland in Civil Causes (with a Historical Introduction, and an Appendix of Statutes and Acts of Parliament). By John DOVE WILSON, Esq., Advocate,

Sheriff-Substitute, Aberdeen. In One Volume, 8vo.

The learned Sheriff, in availing himself of the demand for a second edition, while keeping to the lines laid down by him in the first, has so largely improved on the original work, both in respect to the text and appendix, that we have no hesitation in saying that the Practice' will be so appreciated by the legal profession throughout the country as to be not simply in every practising lawyer's library, but at his hand for daily reference.”Daily Review.
