New. * Originally conceived as a companion volume to Pollock and Maitland's History of English Law, this valuable work of legal scholarship, was long out-of-print. Its 76 essays fill some 2, 500 pages. At the time of its original publication the Harvard Law Review stated: "No one can fail to be impressed with the deep research, the deliberate construction, and the substantial worth of these essays."
For those of you who write in a field of scholarship, historical perspective becomes harder to find because book are out of print. Thanks to the Alibiris service, I was able to find this wonderful 3 volume series of articles written by jurists at and before the turn of thecentury. It provided a very authentic viewpoint that I was able to add to the article and demonstrate the development of ideas with articles rather than just mere speculation or anectodal research. The volumes are really of interest to anyone in the field of jurisprudence.
