Former owner's name on front pastedown, in navy blue library-style buckram binding with gilt lettering at spine, a specially bound copy interleaved with lined pages some of which have annotations by the former owner Francis X. Dwyer regarding acquisitions and prices. Dwyer was co-author of a widely used textbook: "Introduction to the Study of Law," by Edmund M. Morgan and Francis X. Dwyer, and served in the Law Libraries at Harvard, and later, as librarian at the Law Library in the Library of Congress for decades, rising to Acting Law Librarian of Congress. Dwyer was also a lawyer, and he had the distinction of having been admitted to the Bar of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1939.A unique working copy, including material of interest to the history of law bibliography and scholarship. Any collector or librarian who has dealt with the large bookbinding firms will note with sardonic glee that in the gilt stamping of Francis Dwyer's name at the foot of the spine to this painstakingly maintained personal copy -- his surname has been comically mispelled (as if dictated over a bad, old long distance telephone connection - "DeWire"). Several items laid-in including pages from bookseller catalogues, typped & carbon lists of addenda for State Acts, etc. . (Inventory #: 40118)
