Chalmers' Marine Insurance Act 1906

Eleventh Edition

By Simon Rainey QC, David Walsh, Guy Blackwood

The newest edition of Chalmers' Marine Insurance Act 1906 is fully revised and updated by Simon Rainey QC, Guy Blackwood, and David Walsh, all marine insurance practitioners at Quadrant Chambers. It is an essential guide to the provisions of the Act, remaining faithful to Chalmers' objectives when writing his 1901 Digest of The Law of Marine. Most if not all of Sir Mackenzie Chalmers' footnotes and annotations are preserved so that readers are able to see what he intended to achieve/codify in the Act, providing a full historical archive. Important cases since the 10th edition are included. What makes the book unique is the fact that it is far more than a piece of annotated legislation; it includes case law with analysis and puts the decisions made in the individual cases into the context of Act. There is no other book or electronic service that does this. As marine insurance is encompassed by the Marine Insurance Act 1906, this book provides the user with an unrivalled guide to, and understanding of how, the Act has evolved and how it is implemented in practice. It is a desktop, everyday reference tool for anyone involved in any of the aspects of marine insurance. Important cases since the 10th edition are covered in the discussion on the relevant sections of the Act. There has been a plethora of case law since the last edition published in 1993 which is covered such as the Resolute [2008] EWCA Civ 1314 and the Marina Iris [2005] SGHC 238.
