It is overwhelming in its scholarship, humbling in its ambit. It is the foremost work on the law of contract. . . it continues to be the practitioner's choice for authority and accessibility. There is no doubt that anyone called upon to advise on contract law or to apply its principles will find this work indispensable. Chitty has been around a long time. In fact, the first edition was published in 1826. Therefore, it has had a very long time to establish itself as the premier work on the English law of contract, where it continues to enjoy an unrivalled status. It is the authority to which all legal practitioners turn, when contract points are in issue. New Law Journal
