About This Item

2017. ISBN-13: 9781616191603. ISBN-10: 1616191600. 2018 Winner of the Joseph L. Andrews Legal Literature Award, American Association of Law Libraries Widener, Michael and Mark S. Weiner. Law's Picture Books: The Yale Law Library Collection. vii, 211 pp., 166 color illustrations. Clark, New Jersey: Talbot Publishing (an imprint of The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.), 2017. ISBN-13: 9781616191603. ISBN-10:1616191600. Softbound. New. $45. * "Illustrated law books" may seem like an oxymoron. After all, the law is conceptual, analytic, and so very wordy! Yet for the past decade the Yale Law Library has assembled a lavish collection of over a thousand illustrated law books spanning eight centuries and four continents. Beginning as a major exhibit of that collection at the Grolier Club in Manhattan (9/13 to 11/18/17) curated by Yale Law School Rare Book Librarian Michael Widener and legal historian Mark S. Weiner (author of The Rule of the Clan)--and praised as "fascinating" by the New Yorker, "eye-opening" by the Wall Street Journal, "courageous" by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, and "exceptional" by the New Criterion--Law's Picture Books will surprise and delight both bibliophiles and members of the legal community. This handsome full-color book is enhanced by the essays "Collecting Yale Law Library's Picture Books," (Michael Widener), "Reflections on an Exhibition," (Mark S. Weiner), "Ars Memoria in Early Law: Looking Beneath the Picture," (Jolande E. Goldberg, Law Library of Congress), and "Law's Picture Books and the History of Book Illustration," (Erin C. Blake, Folger Shakespeare Library).
