This, the 6th Eddition: a must have reference book. Do consider the latest one (9th), as it's got certain user features which are possibly better as it seperates certain things such as maxims out of the main body. This one's pre-Gardiner (the editor). He's ruined a lot of the definitions in the versions following this one. He defends this in all three prefaces, of all three later ones. He's got an agenda, or he just likes making his mark, but why does he need to defend this decision THREE EDDITIONS INTO HIS EDITORSHIP if it's for the better? I got my one through in perfect shape, within days, and all in it was less than £15.oo. If you want a load of definitions of technical jurisdiction specific administrative forms from a international text, in this time of the internet, which he boasts about having included, why do you even bother with a propper text book?
