"This small volume is the outgrowth of a series of lectures given at Harvard University. It is put forth primarily for the use of students there, but is may also prove of assistance to the members of the General Court, to those who are interested in constitutional and historical matters, and at the present time, when a constitutional convention is contemplated, to those who may serve as delegates."--Pref. Originally published in 1916, before the Constitutional Convention of 1917, and now brought up to date to cover that convention and various changes in laws and legislative procedure.--Cf. Pref.
