Cloth. $195. * "These interesting volumes serve a double purpose; they supply condensed biographies (in the style of the Dictionary of National Biography) of all who held judicial office in Ireland from the earliest days down to the new constitution, with references to sources and chronological tables. In short, they are the Irish counterpart to Foss's book, The Judges of England. And secondly, the general chapters are a careful history of the Irish judiciary, its members, their politics and connections, and the legal profession in general, with some remarks upon the history of the courts in Ireland.
