A Substantial Collection of Legal Maxims That is Now an Accepted Classic Each maxim is expertly translated, and enhanced by Broom's knowledgeable explanatory essays that provide the source and meaning, and are in themselves extremely well-annotated. Taken in light of his excellent classification system, Broom's essays will facilitate an understanding of the principles of common law. This popular book obtained a wide circulation and went through many editions, this being a reprint of the eighth (and last) American edition of 1882. Includes an Alphabetical List of Legal Maxims, a Table of Cases and Index. "His is the very best book of the kind extant." -J.G.
