About this Item: Universal Law Publishing, 2011. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. Famous Judges, Lawyers And Cases Of Bombay covers the history of the Courts of Bombay, from the days of Gerald Aungier in 1662 to the establishment of the High Court of Judicature of Bombay in 1862, and until the night before India became independent. Summary Of The Book Famous Judges, Lawyers And Cases Of Bombay is not just a chronicle of legal affairs, comprehensible only to lawyers, it is a stimulating story that is graphically told. It is rendered more vivid and picturesque by being projected against a background of general history. The Judicial History of Bombay during the British era spans over a period of 300 years, starting from 1661 when Bombay became the first possession of the British on Indian soil. The author gives a vivid description of how law and law courts in Bombay gradually forged their way out of primitive darkness, awakening into rational and enlightened justice. From the Preface to the concluding chapter there is scarcely a dull page or a dreary passage as the writer`s historical imagination enables him to present the events and personalities of the past in the appropriate atmosphere and environments of bygone ages. The reader is taken on a journey where he comes across a pageantry of actions and events, and a procession of intriguing and arresting personalities. Multidimensional and challenging judges and advocates stalk across the stage, and the writer gives a just and balanced estimate of their characters and careers. Interspersed with innumerable anecdotes and information on and about the Court, the Bar, the Bench, and their decisions, Famous Judges, Lawyers And Cases Of Bombay serves to be an extremely interesting piece of work by Vachha. Printed Pages: 367. Seller Inventory # 101215
