Of the first edition the Journal of Planning and Property Law said: ' This work is outstanding and we can only think of one other in the same class published in the last twenty years ... a thoughtful, thorough and authoritative examination of the subject, it is hardly probable that any serious decision will be made without giving very full weight to its views. In short, this is an outstanding work of great merit.'

In this new edition the law and practice of land registration, in which there have been considerable developments, has been brought up to date in every detail. In particular, since the first edition was published the county boroughs of Manchester, Salford and other Northern cities, whose conveyancing is bedevilled with a complicated system of rentcharges, have become areas of compulsory registration, so that the author has written a new chapter which deals fully with the treatment of rentcharges on the register.

Then, in view of the radical changes effected by the Charities Act, 1960, an entirely fresh chapter on charities has been prepared. There is a further short new chapter on the " title shown procedure."

A massive expansion of land registration is planned for the next eight years. This work appears, therefore, at an opportune moment, and will be of inestimable value to practitioners. It provides them with complete and detailed answers to all the land registration problems they are now meeting or are likely to meet in their daily practice.
