About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1932, this book examines Section Four of the British Statute of Frauds. Although all but two sections of the original Statute have been repealed, Statute Four has a continued influence on British contract and surety law and has been adopted, in various forms, by various countries in the Commonwealth. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in British legal history.
