Gives in a condensed form the provisions of the various public Acts included in this branch of legislation, accompanied by free marginal notes, and an extensive Index: likely to be of especial service to railway officers.--The Times, City Article

Mr. Moore has been at great pains to examine and bring within reasonable compass the provisions of the different Acts.... There is also an Introduction, containing & vast amount of statistical and financial information; and a copious Analytical Index. To all who are interested in the law of railways, we most strongly recommend this work. Morning Herald

Mr. Moore's valuable work on railways .... contains all the general Acts relating to Railways, excellently arranged and indexed, and an introductory chapter in which we find a good history of railways. Railway Directors, officers, and shareholders, as well as professional men, will find this work of assistance to them.-Herapath's Railway Journal

An admirable work by Mr. Arthur Moore, of the Dublin and Wicklow, in which the vast body of dispersed and inconsecutive railway legislation is brought together in appreciable shape and form. The work goes far to supply what has long been felt as a want, alike by solicitors, managers, and all others interested in railway guidance or management... A manual for ready and useful reference... & commentary on the patience. talent, and nice sense of order of the author.-Railway Times.

A work lately issued by the intelligent Secretary of the Dublin and Wicklow Railway Company: a principal and most useful feature of the book is a copious Analytical Index, by means of which the law, on any special (railway) subject becomes matter of easy reference. The work is obviously the result of much industry and talent; it is, moreover, admirably printed, and appears to supply a desideratum long felt by the railway interest. -Slaughter's Railway Intelligence, vol. x., Secretary of Stock Exchange, London. The whole of the statutory laws by which the railway system is governed is here pro

led and simplified in the most methodical manner; and so far as we are enabled to judge, there appears to be no question affecting railway management but what is here provided with the law upon the subject. Furthermore, it is accompanied by a well digested and comprehensive Analytical Index, by the aid of which any topic can be readily found. The text of the work is preceded by a mass of very interesting matter of a statistical and financial character, by which the gradual development of the system from its early origin down to the present time may be nicely estimated. We do not hesitate to say, that the work cannot fail to be of inestimable value to all officially connected with railways, or shareholders generally, and we have much pleasure in recommending i their especial notice. --Bradshaw, Shareholders' Guide and Railway Manual, &c., for 1860.

This edition of the General Railway Acts, for which we are indebted to the experienced pen of Mr. Moore, the Secretary of the Kingstown and Wicklow Railways, will, we doubt not, prove exceedingly serviceable to those for whose use it is intended: ... A good working copy of the General Acts. Mr. Moore has prefaced his text with some interest ing statistics connected with railway capital, railway traffic, numbers employed on railways, and the like; the publication, as a whole, being well entitled to the support of gentlemen officially engaged with railway companies: ,, very convenient and reliable for reference. The publication is, we may add, enriched with a most copious Analytical Index,one of the most valuable constituents of a work of this nature. ---Railway Record.

We have rarely seen so large an amount of valuable and interesting matter comprised in so small a space as the author of this highly serviceable work has compressed within the 28 pages which he modestly styles his " Introduction.” The historical and statistical details of this chapter would, in themselves, we think, form a popular and useful pamphlet. ... The clauses in various successive statutes, which bear upon one and the same subject, are linked together by foot-notes, which are also explanatory where comment is needful, and every facility for immediate reference wbich can be afforded by a copious index, and careful adjustment of the marginal references of the statutes themselves, is abundantly supplied. The book is, without doubt, one of the best performances of its kind that the practical tendencies and commercial requirements of the present day have originated; and we recommend it to all parties interested in railway law,-in other words, to the bulk of the professional and mercantile public.-- Railway Advertiser.

More especially for those immediately and practically connected with Railways, and a guide to their statutory duties, obligations, and responsibilities. To persons interested, and their name is legion, the volume is of great utility. The labour and care with which the public statutes have been arranged and annotated, and an elaborate and explanatory Index superadded, fully evince the practical interest which the author has taken in the subject. We cordially recommend the volume to the profession and the statistics of railways introduced into the work read at first sight like marvels. They are not, however, more marvellous than the system.--Leader.

The author is secretary to an Irish railway. He has probably felt that to acquire a competent general knowledge of the provisions of the eighty or ninety Acts of Parliament which bear upon the general law of railways is no light task, and that to have to seek any Act to which you wish to refer in our Statutes at Large, without the help of any general index, is too much for the patience of any Irishman-indeed of any Englishman perhaps of any Scot. He has therefore in this Hand-book printed all the general statutory provisions affecting railways, retaining those provisions which have been repealed or amended; but sufficiently distinguishing these provisions by the type or otherwise, and in the notes referring the reader to the repealing or amending statute... The Index is Will well sustain the high reputation of Mr. Moore's useful publications on the Poor Law and other subjects. It comprises all the public Acts relating to railways-with very useful Notes--is admirably arranged, and has a valuable Index, which is in fact an abstract of the whole of the general statutes relating to railways, including the Consolidation Acts. Mr. Moore prefaces this with a brief but striking and interesting Introduction, containing much valuable information as to the Statistics of the railways of the United Kingdom, their working and results. The work must, we think, be of great value to all persons connected with railways.-Saunders' News-Letter.

vhole. This alone occupies about 80 pages of small type, and appears to be prepared with great care. If the Index stands the test of practical use as well as it has done those to which we have put it in our examination (and these have been neither few nor slight) we do not hesitate to say that the possession of this book will effect an immense saving of time and labout to those concerned in the manag ment of railways. In the Introduction, Mr. Moore indulges in some statistical statements, which, if not immediately connected with the principal object of his book, are at least interesting, and may here meet the eyes of many who will not search for them elsewhere. --Athenceum.

A manual of railway legislation of a highly valuable and practical character. ... very creditable to the good sense and judgment of Mr. Moore ... In the Introduction we have a lucid summary of railway statistics, containing a variety of information not hitherto accessible, and some facts not hitherto known. The Index, also, is a valuable indeed necessary-portion of the work, and its arrangement exhibits the perfection of care. We cannot doubt that this “ Handbook" will prove a valuable boon to those for whom it has been compiled, and we feel satisfied that all who may have occasion to consult its pages will heartily thank Mr. Moore for the immense pains he has taken in providing them with such a work of reference. -Daily Express.

Mr. Moore is well known for his “Compendium of the Irish Poor Law," and other statistical works. In the “Handbook of Railway Law" he has contributed a useful guide to all who are professionally interested in the subject..., All legislation on railways is comprised in one moderate volume, accompanied by a well-written Introduction about the origin and progress of railways, their statistics, and financial statements . . . especially valuable to railway directors and officers ... and contains a very elaborate and comprehensive Index-Freeman's Journal

In addition to having all this valuable mass of railway knowledge brought together in a single book, further facility of reference is given in a full and copious analytical Index. The work must prove of the utmost value to all those interested in railway property, either pecuniarily or professionally. The introduction contains a large amount of statistical and financial information.-Dublin Evening Post.

A very valuable volume. ... It is evident that the author is thoroughly conversant with the subject. ... The knowledge to be obtained from his work is eminently practical.-Advertising Gazette.

Supplies what was long a desideratum among those concerned in railway management. It contains all the General Acts relating to railways, admirably arranged and indexed, and an introductory chapter on the history of railways, which may be perused with interest even by unprofessional readers. Its especial value to railway officers has been pointed out by a most competent authority,--the writer of the railway summary in the Times.-Hand-Book for Ireland, 7th Edit.

Compiled in a clear and simple manner... The work opens with a very interesting sketch of the history and progress of railway legislation, to which are added statistical and financial statements.. :-Dublin Builder.

This well-printed volume contains the public general Railway Acts, an Introduction containing statistical information as to railways, and a very copious Index... Contains in a portable form all the railway law likely to be looked into by a non-professional man and from its compactness and facility for reference will save time and trouble to professional men. -Scotsman.
