    How do you reference quotes taken from a book containing articles by many different writers (ie. the book is edited by someone but the actual text quoted has been written by someone else and is taken from another book or paper)?

    That depends entirely on the citation standard you are using - there should be a handbook for the standard you are using which will tell you how to do this.

    For example, using OSCOLA (the Oxford legal citation standard) it would look like this:

    T Honoré, 'Trusts: The Inessentials' in J Getzler (ed) Rationalizing Property, Equity and Trusts: Essays in Honour of Edward Burn (LexisNexis UK, London 2003)

    Well, to use your example I guess I would reference it like this:
    T Honoré, 'Trusts: The Inessentials' in J Getzler, Rationalizing Property, Equity and Trusts: Essays in Honour of Edward Burn (London: LexisNexis UK, 2003)
    Does this look correct?

    What referencing system are you using? If you are using the Harvard style, then this is a great website to use: http://libweb.anglia.ac.uk/referencing/harvard.htm

    This is, what I think, you're after:

    Chapters of edited books
    For chapters of edited books the required elements for a reference are:

    Chapter author(s) surname(s) and initials. Year of chapter. Title of chapter followed by “In:”
    Book editor(s) initials and surnames with ed. or eds. after the last name. Year of book. Title of book. Place of publication: Publisher. Chapter number or first and last page numbers followed by full-stop.

    Smith, J., 1975. A source of information. In W. Jones, ed. One hundred and one ways to find information about health. Oxford: Oxford University Press. Ch. 2.

    Samson,C., 1970. Problems of information studies in history. In S. Stone, ed. Humanities information research. Sheffield: CRUS, 1980, pp. 44-68.
    If you're using another system, then ignore me.
