Hardback. 2nd Edn., first pub. 1901. The author was a law lecturer at Cambridge University, which afforded him the opportunity of 'observing what portions of our case-law are best adapted to arouse the attention and impress the memory of students in their early days of difficulty, when legal phrases and principles have not yet ceased to be unfamiliar and uninviting....' The author has not limited himself to the decisions of the Courts of Criminal Appeal, or to 'modern' decisions, or even to English ones. He preferred short cases; any longer ones he abridged. In this 2nd edition, he took note of some 'recent' modifications of the law and also introduced illustrations of the difficulties connected with Military Obedience. Contents include : An Index of Cases. Part I - General Principles of Criminal Liability (with 4 Sections); Part II - Definitions of Particular Crimes (with 20 Sections); Part III - Modes of Legal Proof (with 3 Sections). 544pp. lge. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. With copious notes and underlinings to text throughout, by a previous owner in both pen and penci, browned edges, v. sl. shaky sp. which is also showing signs of wear at head and tail. Nr. Vg. A fairly heavy book which may require additional postage.
