"Mr. Shelford has long since established implicit confidence in the accuracy, fullness and practical utility of every book to which his name is attached. His Law of Railways has long been among the best of his performances, and a careful examination of this edition will fully warrant his announcement that the new matter is important and extensive."-The Law Magazine.

"Mr. Shelford was one of the first to reduce this new law to the form of a treatise, and that his labours have found favour with those who are most competent to judge of their value is proved by the fact that already it has attained to the dignity of a Third Edition. It is not necessary now to describe a book that must be so well known to all our readers,-enough to state that this New Edition embodies the very latest Law, all the New Statutes and the multitudinous Decisions, so that the Volume presents, in a form conveniently arranged for refer ence, the entire Law of Railways as it is at this moment."-The Law Times. "We can readily indorse Mr. Shelford's assertion, that the new matter introduced into this edition is extensive and important. This, added to the number of forms, of considerable importance, and cases, of which there are some 1,200, an ample table of contents and a very copious index, conduce to make the work all that could be desired. Those who are interested in the law on which it treats may refer to it not merely with a certainty of being able to find what they are looking for, but of finding the general law on the subject carefully collected, explained and illustrated, by a reference to almost every decision which bears upon the point at issue."-The Justice of the Peace.
