Lawyers will find it a fascinating experience to delve into this early comprehensive treatment of an important legal subject. A lien at law is an implied obligation whereby real or personal property is bound for the discharge of a debt.

The name "lien" was not used until early in the eighteenth century, but the right existed as early as the reign of Edward IV as a right of retainer. Covered here in detail are the types of property to be affected and the classes of persons in whose favor the liens arise. Extensive coverage is given to mechanics' liens.
