London : Knight and Bagster, 14, Bartholomew Close. ADVERTISLMENT.

In the summary of the law of elections which precedes this collection of the statutes, the author has endeavoured to compress whatever matters he deemed of most practical importance, into as small a compass as might consist with clearness, and to present a concise statement of the points of law which most frequently arise, either at the hustings or before a committee. It was thought more convenient to state in the summary what the author conceived to be the effect of the provisions of the statutes, and in some instances merely to refer to them, than to insert extracts from them ; because the subject being thus relieved from the lengthened and technical phraseology of the legislature, is communicated more familiarly to the reader; and the statutes themselves are added in the appendix, that the words of the legislature may be resorted to when required for the purpose of reference or citation.
