The first edition of this book was published in 2006 by Chenglo Limited, Enugu, Nigeria under the title, Commercial Law: Sale of Goods,  Hire-Purchase and Carriage of Goods by Sea. The current book incorporates some information from the Hire-Purchase component of the first edition.

In  addition  to  hire-purchase which  is  extensively  modified,  this  book  covers equipment leasing, a contemporary area of commercial  law that has not received much  attention  from  authors  in  Nigeria.   Although  equipment  leasing  is  not taught at the undergraduate level, the limited scope of the Hire-Purchase Act in relation to goods other than motor vehicles has naturally created the need  for another form of transaction that enables the acquisition of expensive equipment on  terms  that do  not  necessitate  the purchase  of the equipment.  Equipment leasing is a way to fill this need.
