Title: One Hundred Years of Law: An Account of the ...
Publisher: Brown, Hay and Stephens, Springfield
Publication Date: 1928
Edition: 1st Edition
Small 4to. Tan buckram, paper label. 53pp. Frontispiece, illustrations. Very good. Uncommon first edition of this company history, with an unusual connection: Donation bookplate on front pastedown records that this copy was given to Springfield Junior College (Springfield, Illinois) by the family of Stuart Brown -- of the law firm that published this title. In a nutshell, Stuart and Lincoln (1837-41) evolved into Stuart, Edwards and Brown (Christopher Brown joining the firm) in 1860; in 1886, following the death of John T. Stuart and Benjamin Edwards, Brown's son Stuart joined the firm; later came the grandson of Stephen Logan (Lincoln's second law partner), Stuart's brother-in-law Logan Hay; by 1921 and after many firm name changes, the firm of Brown, Hay & Stephens came into being. Stuart brown died in 1924, but the firm of which he was partner published this centennial history and gave this copy to the local college library -- whose only other marking is a circular blind-embossed imprint on title page. This copy also bears an interesting philatelic addition: Tipped to rear pastedown is a fascinating commemorative envelope (NOT a first day cover),6½" X 3 3/4", cancelled in Springfield on 14 April 1966 and bearing the 4-cent Lincoln stamp. Envelope is captioned "Logan & Lincoln Law Partnership" and features images of Lincoln and Logan and brief text describing their partnership. MONAGHAN 2989. Bookseller Inventory # 41203
