Excerpt from An Essay on Possession in the Common Law, Parts I and II, Vol. 3 The want of any systematic account of Possession in English law-books has often been remarked upon. A few years ago, in the course of my work on the law of Torts, I had to consider the learning of Trespass, Conversion, and other wrongs to property; for which purpose it became necessary to face the question whether a doctrine of Possession did not exist in an implicit form in our authorities, and if so, what kind of doctrine it was. I then learnt that, several years earlier, Mr. R. S. Wright had been confronted with a like problem in a survey of our criminal law, and had made a full study of the subject in that connexion. Upon communication with Mr. Wright it appeared that he had collected his materials in a form nearly ready for publication; and, in the result, the present work was undertaken. It is a composite, not a joint work. We should have preferred for many reasons to combine our researches in a single and uniform exposition, but we found that such a plan would require an amount not only of continuous but of simultaneous leisure beyond what we could command. Accordingly we have been content to divide the work as it now stands; and, although we have discussed many parts of the subject together, and seen one another's contributions in every stage, each of us is alone answerable for that which is ascribed to him on the title-page. Whatever defects are the necessary consequence of this arrangement may be taken as confessed, with the excuse that the substance, be its value more or less, could not have been produced on any other terms.
