The Principles of Pleading.Boston: Charles C. Little & James Brown, 1846 Stock Code: 114660
Pleading in AmericaFirst edition. Nathaniel Beverley Tucker (1748-1851) was a strong proponent of states' rights and pro-slavery positions, who, upon taking up his father's old post as professor of law and government at the college of William and Mary, enthused his students with his fiery southern nationalism and secessionist rhetoric. However, his broad approach to legal education also led to calm and valuable contributions to the study of law and government, with the present work on the principles of pleading in court particularly stressing the importance of procedure.
Octavo (195 x 125 mm). Contemporary sheep, discreetly rebacked, red morocco label to spine.
Refurbished with edges and corners repaired, rebacked with new label and tooling, minor marking to covers, pencilled jottings to endpapers, botanical specimen inserted at p. 102, lightly toned, occasional light foxing. A very good copy.
