Reviews:

"Here's a law book that's anything but dry. Law: A Treasury of Art and Literature is a hefty, handsome volume telling the story of lawyers and legalitiies from Hammurabi to the present ... the most enjoyable law book ever produced." - Parade Magazine

"At last! Law: A Treasury of Art and Literature celebrates teh culture of law thourghout history in painting, photography, fiction, essay, and poetry." - The United States Law Weekly

"This book is an inspiring story of law through the ages told through the means of painting, photography, essay,s poetry, and beautiful art." - New York State Bar Journal

"Splendid cross-cultural weave of excerpts from classical legal writing and art related to the field. For the court-junkie on your lists, almost a nice as a fat contigency fee." - Philadelphia Inquirer

"Colorful figures, both real and fictional, take up legal matters as practitioners, plaintiffs, or ironic commentators - Shylock, Hamlet, Judge Roy Bean, Gandhi, and Groucho Marx, just to name a few ... Paintaings by Rembrandt, Trumbull, Hogarth, Daumier, Shahn, Rockwell, and Warhol ... are a visual feast." - Legal Intelligencer

"The colorplatres are magnificent ... clear and eminently suitable to the text they accompany ... A wonderful guide to the place of law in history and social intercourse through the ages." - Legal Publishing Preview

The inspiring story of law through the ages is told in this beautiful volume through teh media of painting, photography, fiction, essay, poetry, and much more. Law: A Treasury of Art and Literature is a celebration of the profession upon whose ideals civilized society depends. Brought togehter for the first time in a lavishly illustrated, large-format book are excerpts from great writings in law, such as Justinian's The Digest of Roman Law, Cicero's Laws, and Paine's Common Sense.

Freat trials from history appear in these pages as well, as Socrates muses on his death sentence, Joan of Arc testifies before teh Inquisition, Galileo defends his astronomy, and Whistler sues the great Victorian art critic John Ruskin. Colorful figures, both real and fictional, take up legal matters as practitoners, plaintiffs, or ironic commentators - Shylock, Hamlet, Alexander Hamilton, Judge Roy Bean, Gandhi, and Groucho Marx, just to name a few. Humorous pieces, historical pieces, philosophical pieces - virtually every kind of literary approach to the legal (and illegal) activities of human society - are represented in these pages. Just why law is so studied and written about is evident in the dazzling range of topics covered in the text selections: Hebraic law, the ancient Chinese T'ang code, medeval Frankish law, the law practice of Thomas Jefferson, the Napoleonic code, Hitler's attacks on legal institutions, the role of women lawyers, censorship, the McCarthy hearing, racism in the courts, and Wall Street yuppies. And that is just hint of the hours of enjoyable reading this remarkable treasury will offer to people who practice law, who study law, or who simply want to bestow an unforgetable gift upon their favorite attorney.

The 198 illustrations, 113 of which are exquisitely reproduced in full color , draw upon enduring works of art related to the law, including Rembrandt's Moses and The Tables of The Law, Trumbull's The Signing of The Declaration of Independence, and Shahn's The Passion of Sacco and Vanzetti. Photogrpahs provide numerous illustrations, ranging from the ancient cuneiform tables of the Code of Hammurabi to Amercian courthouse architecture.

Law: A Treasury of Art and Literature will delight thoughtful readers, art lovers, and collectors of fine books for many years to come.
