PRESS OF Isaac FRIEDENWALD,
This work is prepared with the design of bringing all the law pertaining to patents, trade-marks and copyrights, so far as they depend on statutes, within the compass of a single volume. The plan adopted for this purpose is to give the statutes in their order as they are in the Revised Statutes, and to place notes referring to the decisions under the section construed. For this purpose
all the decisions of the courts and of the Commissioner of Patents have been examined. The notes referring to the decisions of the courts are distinguished from those referring to the decisions of the Commissioner by being placed in leaded or more open type. A table has also been prepared showing the time of the repeal of each act, and the place where any analogous provision in the Revised Statutes may now be found, and under each section a reference is given to the prior acts on the same subject. By this means a lawyer may readily ascertain whether a provision in a statute cited in a decision is still in force, or whether a statute has been so modified as to affect the application of a decision. The Rules of the Patent Office and a set of Forms have also been appended. It is believed that the work thus prepared brings within a narrow compass all that a lawyer may desire to know concerning the subject, or refers him to the original sources for further information.
