COMMENTS AND CASES ON PROPERTY by Hector De Leon & Hector De Leon Jr.; This book which is now on its sixth edition, is designed for use by law students as a basic text on the subject. Comprehensive and up-to-date, it is suitable as a reference for judges and practitioners alike. The authors have tried to discuss all aspects of every legal provision. Where appropriate, examples and illustrative cases are given, but always after the reader is provided with sufficient background of the concepts, rules, and/or principles involved. To acquaint the student with the method of judicial reasoning, selected decisions of the Supreme Court, with the facts reduced to the bare essentials, are presented in nearly complete form especially where the Court makes an analysis of related cases and compares them with the case under consideration. The result is an extensive volume which the authors hope will be found adequate to serve the purpose for which it was prepared.
