Lectures on Scots Law: Delivered Under the Auspices of the Stirlingshire Faculty of Solicitors and Procurators, in February, March and April, 1889 (Classic Reprint) by T C Young (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from Lectures on Scots Law: Delivered Under the Auspices of the Stirlingshire Faculty of Solicitors and Procurators, in February, March and April, 1889 In it was enacted that it should longer be necessary to proceed' to the lands, or to perform any act of infeftment thereon, but that sasine should be given by producing to a tary the warrants of sasine, and expeding and recording an instrument of sasine. In the case of burgage subjects it was made optional to give sasine within the Council Chambers of the burgh by delivery of a pen. This was truly the introduction of symbolical possession, - a mere symbol standing in the place of a fact. The giving of earth and stone on the ground of the lands is improperly spoken of as symbolical delivery. It was real, actual, and corporal delivery, and the piece of earth or stone was really a part of the whole. It may be instructive at this point to te the close historical analogy between the English law of real property and our own as bearing on the law of possession.
