It deals very fully with the history and the statute law as to literary copyright; as to Crown and university and college copyright; as to musical, dramatic, and artistic copyright, and copyright in designs; as to international copyright and copyright in foreign countries; and as to agreements between authors and publishers. The merits of the book are proved by the fact that it reached a ninth edition in 1958." --William S.
