Description
This is the first edition of Bailment to be published in eighteen years. While the book has linegered in the twentieth-century its subject has moved with the times. Both in doctrinal development and in commercial application the modern bailment has shown spirited animation. The rapid pave of development is reflected in the new edition. The text has been radically revised and numerous new chapters have been added, to fasten the subject more securely to its moorings and illuminate its murkier corners. Among the fields given new coverage are crime and the proceeds of crime, limitation periods, conflict of laws, equity, restitution, damages and practice and procedure. Sections of the second edition have been enlarged to form new chapters in their own right: for example, human remains, intangible property, and the vexed question of the identification of the bailor, all of which areas have attracted penetrating new authority. Other new chapters deal with transmissible leases, insurance, taxation, insolvency, shipping contracts, air carriage, animal bailments, and mixtures and fixtures. There is an enlarged account of the law on title retention and of the points of distinction between bailment and gift.
