Boston: Little, Brown, and Company, 1881. xvi, 422 pp. Reprinted 2005, 2017 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584774990. ISBN-10: 1584774991. Hardcover. New. $27.95 *This landmark work, which, according to Winfield, "blew fresh air into lawyer's minds encrusted with Blackstone and Kent," was a decisive influence on sociological jurisprudence, legal realism and the general development of American law in the twentieth century. (Percy H. Winfield, Chief Sources of Anglo-American Law 38.) Rejecting the reigning positivist ethos of the nineteenth century, Holmes proposed that the law was not a science founded on abstract universal principles but a body of practices that responded to particular situations. This functionalist interpretation led to his radical conclusion that law was not discovered, but invented. This theme is announced in the famous quote at the beginning of Lecture I: "The life of the law has not been logic: it has been experience." CONTENTS: Lecture I: Early Forms of Liability. Lecture II: The Criminal Law. Lecture III: Torts. Trespass and Negligence. Lecture IV: Fraud, Malice and Intent. The Theory of Torts. Lecture V: The Bailee at Common Law.

    Ninth Life. by Milton Machlin and William Read Woodfield

    New York, NY G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1961. Hardcover First Ed, but unstated. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY WILLIAM READ WOODFIELD. First Ed, unstated. Very good/Very good. Book shows light wear at edges; lightly yellowed. Dustwrapper shows light chipping at spine; light wear at extemeties; mylar protected. NOT a Remainder. NOT a Book-Club Edition. NOT an Ex-Library copy. 8vo. 321pp. Hardback with DJ. Chessman's story isn't as "famous" as the Hauptman case, but it continues to amaze me that anyone, as recently as 1960, could actually be executed for "perverted sex crimes" where a conviction was based on severely questionable testimony, a judge's obvious bias, and a police department's determination to "get" their man. Nonetheless, I would recommend Ninth Life to staunch death penalty supporters who insist that the system "works", whatever THAT means, and to anyone who needs to wake up to the travesties of justice that take place in our modern-day society. A good read and even more, an excellent topic for intelligent discussion and debate. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY AUTHOR.
