Part of a series of concise manuals on various legal topics, this work provides a practical and accessible overview of the law of landlord and tenant. These guides were notable for being advertised to laymen and not lawyers, but were popular among both groups given their accuracy and affordability. Our copy, likely owned by a Suffolk law student, has manuscript notes titled "On Leases" and a sample rent due notice to its blank leaves, in addition to notes on the content. This edition appears to be unrecorded. No copies located by OCLC or Library Hub, though OCLC locates 4 copies of the first edition (none in North America). Not in Sweet & Maxwell.
