With a frontispiece of Serjeant Buzfuz by the author. Apleasant Dickensian diversion spiced with a delightfully wrysense of humor, The Law and Lawyers of Pickwick offers anaccount of one of the most famous legal cases in Englishliterature: Bardell v. Pickwick. Lockwood observes that Mr.Pickwick would have fared even worse under the modern law ofevidence, which would have given Buzfuz an opportunity toamass evidence for a devastating cross-examination. Thisvolume originated as a lecture delivered at Morley Hall,Hackney, in 1893 that was attended by Henry FieldingDickens, the author's son and an attorney. His reply, whichis included here, indicates his warm approval of Lockwood'sthesis.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S. Hein & Co., Inc.
