All edges gilt. Tear and chipping to head and tail of spine; front and rear cover hinges starting. Some bumping to corners. Internally, text is clean, bright and unmarred. First published in 1858, this is one of Holmes' more popular literary works. The novel is a series of essays, featuring a collection of boarders who gather around a table, providing an audience for the wit and philosophy of the Autocrat. The essays take the form of conversations that generally develop into monologues. Cleverly and epigrammatically, the seemingly disconnected, is unified by the recurring themes and personalities. 8vo (8-5/16 x 5-1/2 inches. [ii], viii, 373 pp. Overall, a very good and scarce signed copy of this famous work.

Boston: Little Brown and Company, 1881. First edition, first issue of this landmark work in American law. Octavo, original cloth, gilt titles to the spine. In near fine condition. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example. "To the legal historian, Justice Holmes was to be the leading prophet of the new era. Holmes was part of the generation that had sat at the feet of Darwin and Spencer. When Holmes asserted in his Common Law that ‘the law finds its philosophy (in) the nature of human needs,’ he was sounding the clarion of 20th-century jurisprudence. If the 19th century was one of Legal Darwinism, the 20th was, ultimately, to be that of Mr. Justice Holmes" (The Law in America, 190-91).
