The first edition of this book appeared in 1998. In the preface to that edition, which has not been reprinted in the second edition here under review, Elison Khan outlined the genesis of the book. In essence, the first edition was a revised, expanded and updated version of two chapters that would have formed part of a twenty-chapter publication entitled South African Commercial Law. The publication would have covered almost all aspects of the subject with each chapter "tightly written in such a way as to constitute multum in parvo - much in little space." When the venture did not get off the ground, the two chapters on the law of sale and the law of lease were published in the format of the first edition under the general title Principles of Commercial Law. Its publication was envisaged as constituting the first volume in a projected series on the topic. The first edition succeeds in encapsulating the motto of "much in little space".
