James L. High
Kessinger Publishing, Apr 1, 2005 - Law - 600 pages
1876. From the Preface: The present is the most complete collection of Lord Erskine's speeches that has ever appeared, since it contains many which have never before been published collectively, and, it is believed, all of his legal arguments of every nature which were ever reported. Each speech is prefaced with a concise statement of the facts in the case, to enable the reader to better understand the argument which follows. In some instances extracts from the pleadings or testimony have been given where this course seemed preferable, but in all cases brevity and conciseness have been kept constantly in view...The extent and variety of the topics covered by these speeches, the vast research and fertility of genius which they display, not less than their lofty eloquence and an ardent love of liberty manifest throughout them all, fix their place as legal classics, to which the lawyer will forever turn with increasing delight.
