The new third edition of Professor Charles Debattista's well-respected book takes a unique look at the sale of goods carried by sea under bills of lading

It looks at the document as an instrument of international trade, concentrating on the different things that sellers, buyers and banks want out of bills of lading. It also looks at the practical and legal problems which arise when the sale, carriage and letter of credit contracts do not agree on what the bill of lading should look like

Fundamental developments covered
Since the last edition several cases have come to the English courts re-examining fundamental practical problems with bills of lading:

Must a straight bill of lading be presented for delivery of goods>
When can a carrier clause a bill
Does the letter of credit help in identifying the carrier under a bill of lading?
These questions lie at the centre of the sometimes difficult connections between the contracts of sale, carriage and letter of credit

No shipping or international trade practitioner should be without a copy of this book
