This leather-bound 249-page copy of The Lawyer in Literature by John Marshall Gest, a Judge of the Orphans’ Court in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania was privately printed for the members of The Legal Classics Library in 2002 (originally published by The Boston Book Company in 1913).  This book covers the law and lawyers of Charles Dickens, Pickwick, Sir Walter Scott, Honoré de Balzac, Sir Edward Coke, the influence of Biblical Texts upon English Law, and the Historical Method of the Study of the Law, illustrated by the Master’s Liability for his Servant’s Tort.  Edges are gilded, and the spine is stamped in gold.  The condition looks new.
