One of the reasons that Pease and Chitty's Law of Markets and Fairs has been going (and is so well regarded) after more than a hundred years since the first edition is because of its expert coverage of this complicated area of law... it is likely to continue to be a favourite for the next hundred of years...an invaluable text for local authority lawyers and those advising market and fair operators in the UK and Ireland.

The Law Society of Ireland Gazette, Review of previous edition
Edward Cousins and his co-author Graham Wilson have successfully updated this book, but in doing so have succeeded in retaining not only its overall usefulness, but the fluency of narrative that makes it a genuinely interesting book to read. Legal textbooks that achieve that feat, as well as providing the vital information that the reader requires are to be both applauded and savoured…This book is essential for anyone involved with the law of markets or fairs, whether that is from the local authority side or those advising the traders.
James Button Bulletin
...a practical toolkit of model byelaws and precedents for market officers and local authorities, in addition to a short review of EU implications post Brexit and the devastating effects of Covid-19 which are continuing. They point out that the virus has caused us all to question so many aspects of the way in which we live and go about our daily routines with the possible closure of around 400 Markets in the UK. Thank you very much for the new edition at a difficult time for many people.
