This new addition to the Clarendon Law Series offers an authoritative and concise introduction to personal property law. Ideal for those coming to the subject for the first time, it provides a succinct but comprehensive overview of the subject. Written by a significant figure in the field, this clear and critical account of the principles of Personal Property Law will also be of interest to academics. Providing a definition of personal property law, the author demonstrates why an understanding of the principles of personal property is important. In defining the various types, he discusses the common law interests (ownership and possession) and in the process deals with the proprietary characteristic of bailment. There is also an outline discussion of equitable interests. Michael Bridge describes the means by which the common law protects interests in personal property, and discusses the ways in which interests are conveyed at common law. He examines the rule of 'nemo dat quod non habet' with its various exceptions, and in treating the assignment of choices in action compares it with negotiability. Finally, there is an introduction to security over personal property in the form of lien, pledge, charge, and mortgage. Important changes since the first edition include the Sale of Goods (Amendment) Act 1995 and the Treasure Act 1996.
