"Since the publication of the first edition of Minor on Real Property in 1908 it has been an almost indispensable book to the lawyers of the two Virginias. The usefulness of the book however was never confined to the lawyers of these two states, as it contained a splendid statement of the common law principles, as well as their special application in Virginia as modified by statutes or decisions.": Clayton E.
