The Common Law
This volume of the ABA Classics Series is The Common Law. In the history of the law there have been many great treatises written by many great legal minds, but only a few have had the influence and staying power to truly be called the classics. The Common Law by famed Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. is certainly one of these books.
