Excerpt from A Synopsis of the Bills of Exchange Acts of England and Wales: And the Colonies of Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland, Western Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand

The work, it will be seen, is calculated to be eminently useful, not only in the colonies, but also in London, where the need of an exact acquaintance with colonial law on bills of exchange, cheques and promissory notes exists, quite as strongly as in Melbourne, Sydney, or any other colonial centre.

The method adopted to indicate variations between the different Acts is as follows, viz.: the section as given in the English Act being printed in large type, the alterations contained in each of the colonial Acts are set forth in small type. The great majority of these alterations are verbal only, and do not really affect the law. Perhaps the most inconvenient of them is divergence from the numbering of the sections, a fault which colonial Legislatures might profitably avoid when adopting English Acts. The three colonial Acts in which the numbering differs from the English Act are those of Victoria, Queensland, and Western Australia, all of which are one in advance. The variations are marked by the use of brackets In order to keep the reader readily instructed, a note stating the method of treatment is repeated at the bottom of every page.

The greatest care has been taken in the collation of the texts, which has been entrusted to the hands of a legal gentleman experienced in such work, and it is confidently believed that perfect accuracy has been achieved. The schedules contained in the various Acts will be found on pages 68 to 76. The Table of Contents on pages 77 to 80 will be found serviceable.
