Fraudulent Conveyances: A Treatise Upon Conveyances Made by Debtors to Defraud Creditors

The Law of Fraud and the Procedure: Pertaining to the Redress Thereof 

This treatise is an early practical guide for remedies of creditors in proceedings instituted to convert equitable assets or to reach property fraudulently alienated or held under a secret trust for the debtor. The author criticizes the tendency to curtail the creditor’s powers for relief in this area, and urges that remedies against property rights and interests should be strengthened and improved.
