A Treatise on Fraudulent Conveyances and Creditors' Bills: With a Discussion of Void and Voidable Acts

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

This exhaustive work examines conveyances designed to defraud creditors and contains references to all the cases on the subject, both English and American, at the time the treatise was written in 1872. It does not strive to identify local statutes affecting remedies, but presumes that each practitioner is familiar with the statutes of his own state. Unity and symmetry of subject matter are achieved by considering the law of fraudulent conveyances as simply a part of the common law, with the remedies afforded by common law.
