Synopsis

`It seems impossible to give this book an appropriate title. Primarily it is a collection of wise and witty sayings of the judges. For over 650 years - ever since the reign of Edward I - reporters of one kind or another have been recording the words used by the judges while doing their offices; and in that span the long judicial tradition of fine language and delicate and penetrating wit has produced many flowers.'

From the preface.



The Miscellany was first published 50 years ago and has become a classic and required reading for anyone interested in the law.
