About this Item: Universal Press. Condition: Very Good. . Hardcover. Universal Press, 1931, 1st edn. In dark-blue cloth boards in near-mint condition. 160pp of heavy but acidic stock whose edges have tanned. The chapters are: Lawyers in General / In the Olden Days / The Humour of the Bench / The Humour of the Bar / Humour in the Witness-box / Humour in the Jury-box / Humour in the Dock / Humour in the Summing-up / Humour in the Sentence / "The Great Unpaid" / Humour among the Solicitors / Quips from the Courts. The text cracks along at a cracking pace of which this is typical: "Nor has the Bar failed to provide its quota of Irish bulls, of which perhaps the following is a unique specimen. " Gentlemen of the jury," said an Irish barrister, " it will be for you to say whether this defendant shall be allowed to come into court with unblushing footsteps, with the cloak of hypocrisy in his mouth, and draw three bullocks out of my client's pocket with impunity." / " Gentlemen," said another barrister, " the whole subject is in the dark entirely till we come to the testimony of Mr. B. Then it is that the cloud of doubt begins to crack and the cat is let out of the bag." But the production of bulls is by no means confined to Ireland. Serjeant Vaughan, commenting on the evidence given by the opposing side, was guilty of the following delightful specimen: " And then we come to Brown. Ah, there the impudent and deceitful fellow stands, just like a crocodile, with tears in his eyes, and his hands in his breeches pockets." 7½x5". . . . . Books ship from the US and Ireland.
