No labour, therefore, has been spared to secure accuracy, and still striving after quality in this edition, every statement of the Law has been closely scrutinized and carefully reconsidered; and without forgetting this is but a brief introduction to the principles of the Customary Laws, some new matter has been added to several chapters. Guided by the experience derived from the use of this book in Court practice, it is hoped, the cases in footnotes will be found useful.
The work of 1665, relating to the "Golden Coast of Guinney," referred to in this edition, is substantially compiled from de Faria da Sousa, the Portuguese author, the travels of John Lok in 1553 and 1554, Towrson in 1555 to 1557, published in Hakluyt, and Artus who wrote in 1625. A study of these ancient authors abundantly proves that when, in 1481, Portuguese navigators and other European trading adventurers first appeared on the Gold Coast, they found an organized society having kings, rulers, institutions, and a system of customary laws, most of which remain to this day.
