Reprint of the third edition, enlarged. This book waswritten in the spirit of earlier guides by Fulbeck,Doderidge and Philips, but with a particular emphasis on theneeds of clerks. It addresses a clerk's duties, therelationship between clerks and attorneys, ways to work moreeffectively and other practical matters. Wright is alsointerested in the clerk's intellectual development. To thisend he recommends a rich curriculum of jurisprudential,political, historical and literary works and encourages thestudy of old court hands and Latin. Like his predecessors,Wright dispenses a good deal of moral advice as well.Equally fascinating and charming, this treatise offers arich perspective on English clerks during the age of Austen,Dickens and Trollope.
