Intended as a day-to-day manual, "The Draftsman's Handbook" should be consulted by the draftsman to clarify points of doubt, ie when the use of words, grammar or syntax may affect the meaning of a clause. This new edition is aimed at those facing drafting for the first time and for those preparing for the Bar.

There is an introductory chapter on the history of the English language and coverage of all aspects of document preparation and drafting. There are also in-depth discussions on the use of grammar (prepositions, commands, etc.), syntax and punctuation.
