This is a competent and workmanlike product, done by an experienced hand, which well attains at least a part of its stated objective. Professor Medina says in his preface: "It is believed that a proper treatment of the subject should include every phase of the ordinary actions and special proceedings, including trial and appellate practice, so that the student shall not approach his duties as a practitioner with a knowledge which extends to only a few phases of the subject." And there is here presented a complete and adequate picture in case form of the New York Civil Practice Act from the summons on down through the trial to appellate procedure and special proceedings. Mechanically it is presented in attractive form with an excellent index. To all those interested in this kind of illustrative practice material the book should be extremely valuable.
