About this Item

Reed, John C. Conduct of Lawsuits Out Of and In Court: Practically Teaching, and Copiously Illustrating, the Preparation and Forensic Management of Litigated Cases of All Kinds. Being a New Edition of "Practical Suggestions," Revised and Rewritten. Boston: Little, Brown, and Company. 1885 xxvii, 434pp. Octavo, full calf with red and black leather spine labels with gilt lettering, virtually MINT CONDITION. FIRST EDITION of this classic work which was issued in a second edition in 1912. The second edition was edited by Wigmore who best describes the importance of the work in the introduction as follows: "I have long admired this book ¿ It is for several reasons most admirable in its kind. For one thing, its standards of conduct are high and conscientious, without being either chivalrously unpractical or conventionally unreal. In the next place, its treatment of these everyday problems is based upon a thoughtfulness, a large philosophy, and a shrewd perception of human nature which links it to the truths of life in general, and makes the lawyer as a practitioner fit into the lawyer as a man. Furthermore, it takes up the subject solely as a field for unwritten experience in tact and conduct, not mingling the transitory and local rules of legal procedure; and this unwritten experience it covers systematically from beginning to end. Finally, it views the profession of the advocate as a permanent institution in the world's justice, coming down through the ages, and garnering traditions and wisdom from past generations for the edification of present and future ones ¿ All these four important aspects of the subject are united in Mr. Reed's pages, in a satisfying way not to be seen in any other book known to me. This is the kind of book whose substance every young lawyer should commit to memory. I mean that statement literally. On leaving the law school, he sould live with this book until he knows its precepts from cover to cover." Marke 323-324. Bookseller Inventory # 000145
