To The Reader
The public and the profession are respectfully informed, that this pamphlet has been written solely for the purpose of pointing out the hardships which the writer and others have been, and still are, subjected to, by a committee of the trade, combined for the purpose of preventing competition in the sale of books, particularly Law Books, and not with any vindictive feelings towards any individual.

James Wildy, to whom the pamphlet more immediately relates, has been endeavouring, since the circumstances happened which led to his ruin, to re-establish himself as a law bookseller and binder, on a small scale, at Lincoln's Inn Gateway, outside the gate, Carey-Street.

But being prevented from executing the orders of those gentlemen who formerly favoured him with their custom, and would still wish to employ him, he is driven to the necessity of publishing his case, and thereby holding up to public odium a set of men who, not content with exacting enormous profits, endeavour by sinister and dishonourable means to ruin their poorer, but not less honest or industrious, fellow-tradesmen.
