Parry was an English municipal judge for over twenty years.His book, a guide for "the man in the street," which beganas a series of newspaper articles, outlines the laws con-cerning insolvency, debt and poverty. It is distinguishedby its emphasis on cultural attitudes toward the poor, andits readability and humanity. Parry's was among the strongvoices to speak in sympathy to the poor in response to thePoor Law Amendment Act which had been enacted in 1834."Judge Parry is particularly gifted with that rare imagina-tion which enables him to see mortal men and women whereothers see cases, litigants, and parties before the courts.Hence his volume is a rare document" (Cohen, Law and SocialOrder cited in Marke, A Catalogue of the Law Collection atNew York University (1953) 810).
