Recess Studies
Edited by Sir Alexander Grant, Bart. LL.D. (1870)

THIS volume might almost be described as the result of a "fortuitous concurrence of atoms." The idea from which it sprang will be sufficiently patent to all. That idea was that the Autumn Recess, which falls to the lot of almost all professions in this country, might be utilised in the preparation of calm and careful judgments upon some of the questions occupying, or likely to occupy, the minds of men in Parliament, or elsewhere. The great majority of the writers are personal friends of the Editor's. They were invited to contribute what to them might seem good on subjects in which they were severally interested. The editorial function has confined itself to the collecting of the following papers, which are now offered to the public on the strict principle of limited liability, each writer having said his say on his own subject, under his own name.
