About This Item

1928. New York: Columbia University Press, 1928.. New York: Columbia University Press, 1928. Exceptionally Well-Preserved First Edition, With Dust Jacket, of One of Cardozo's Most Important Books Cardozo, Benjamin N. [1870-1938]. The Paradoxes of Legal Science. New York: Columbia University Press, 1928. v, 142, [1] pp. Near-fine cloth with bright gilt-stamped title in very lightly edgeworn dust jacket, negligible light toning to interior, owner inscription of Arthur P. Rugg to front free endpaper. An exceptionally well-preserved copy. $1,000. * First edition. One of Cardozo's most important books, The Paradoxes of Legal Science is a classic statement of juristic pragmatism. As Goodhart points out, it also reveals the non-legal sources that informed his work. "His many references in these lectures to Greek philosophy show how great a part his early classical training played in the formation of his ideas; in relating his general principles to the concrete cases which, in his words, he used as a kind of legal litmus paper, he was a true Aristotelian." Rugg [1862-1938] was a justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court from 1906 to 1911 and its chief justice from 1911 to 1938. Goodhart, Five Jewish Lawyers of the Common Law 59-60.
