Some shelfwear, light fading to spine, early owner signature and annotation to front free endpaper, internally clean. $250. * Second and last edition. "[T]his is a work full of merit. It is well set out and carries frequent precedents for the pleader in well nigh every chapter. The index is ideal, the print most acceptable, and the principles are stated with the utmost clarity. The passages on criminal libel are particularly valuable, the table of English statutes greatly facilitates a comparison of statute law, and both the material and the price make the book worthy of a place on every legal book-shelf.": A.R.
