Hardback. The memoirs of an American country lawyer, from Phelps, New York, chronicled by his son. Bellamy Partridge's father had opened a law office and practised there for more than 50-yrs and where he worked with him as his law partner and close associate. The source material came from a little black notebook found in his father's desk after his death. Some of the entries sketched the outline of an incident; others gave pages of dialogue and even bits of description. It was obviously material from which he intended to write some of the story of a country lawyer - an ambition which was never fulfilled, until the notebook was discovered. The period of his father's practice was primarily the 50-yrs of comparatively peaceful times between Appomattox and Sarajevo. 313pp. 8vo. h/back. Lightly foxed edges and eps. Vg.
