In traditional style, Professor Grismore has carefully and thoroughly treated in the traditional way all of the traditional principles of the law of Contracts. Here, then, is a book tailor-made for the traditional review. The reviewer has only to make the traditional assumption that any such meticulous restatement of a body of concepts is automatically a contribution to legal literature and his plan of attack is clear. An appreciative recognition of a painstaking piece of work, an involved disagreement or two with the author's statement of some insignificant bits of doctrine (inserted both to prove he read the book and to preserve his reputation for independence of thought) and the reviewer has added to his bibliography another evidence of his productivity as a scholar.
