In 1878 Bram Stoker felt it was essential that a proper guide be published to assist the clerks of these courts. Their role had been augmented by several court directives, statutes and orders, and there was no single source to aid them in their work. The resulting work, published in 1879, is republished here. It includes chapters on the salary and working conditions of a clerk, the general duties, preparing forms, stamps, fines, duties regarding dog regulation (a major source of court income), and returns to the central Registrar.
This is followed by an extensive "Miscellaneous" section which takes up more than half the book. This lists every conceivable regulation that may be relevant in the functioning of the court, from the sale of food and drugs, dangerous lunatics, wages and employment legislation, civil registration of births, deaths and marriages, to staying cattle on the roads. The book ends with a comprehensive list of the 604 functioning Petty Sessions Courts in 1878 and a detailed index.
