dc.description.abstractRecently support has grown for the view that the Torrens system of lands titles registration, which has now spread to numerous jurisdictions throughout the world, was actually not Torrens's work at all, but a copy of a German system passed off by him as his own production. This article reviews the evidence, much of which is here discussed for the first time, and concludes that that view is incorrect. Torrens is entitled to the credit for conceiving the principles of the system; for drafting the bill to give effect to them (with the help of a circle of critical reviewers); and for convincing the public and politicians to support it.en
