BACKGROUND
The first two editions of this work were completed in 1912 and 1941 by the Hon. Grover Cleveland Ladner (1885-1954) when there was no modern real estate practice and form book in Pennsylvania, and grew from his initial efforts in preparing lectures for a course in Conveyancing, to become through the years a recognized standard work.

The Third Edition was completed in 1961 by P. Nicholson Wood (1898-1976), who practiced law with Clark, Ladner, Fortenbaugh & Young of Philadelphia. In recognizing the need for a new revision, the firm of Clark, Ladner, Fortenbaugh & Young sponsored the Revised Fourth Edition in 1979, which was completed by John Makdisi in collaboration with other members of the firm, in a complete revision of the text, extensive annotations, and forms.

With publication of the fifth edition in 2006 the text was renamed LADNER PENNSYLVANIA REAL ESTATE LAW to more accurately reflect the content and purpose of the book.

THE NEW CENTENNIAL EDITION OF LADNER ON CONVEYANCING
This newly revised two-volume treatise by renowned real estate author Ronald M. Friedman. LADNER, which is celebrating its 100th birthday this year, has been the standard for Pennsylvania real estate law and practice since 1913. It contains case law, discussion, analysis, and forms on all aspects of buying or selling real estate, including: Agreements of Sale, Mortgages, Judgments, Liens, Deeds, Easements, Estates and Tenancies, Title Insurance, Real Estate Licensing and Settlement. By evolving with the law, lawyers, and the real estate practitioners it serves, this well-known and revered real estate publication is as relevant to today's practitioners as it was to the barristers of 1913.
