THIS is a book that was written more for the entertainment
than the instruction of lawyers and law students, and the
author, being a true humorist, has made it very interesting.
It is amazing to note how many opportunities for fun he has found
in the Commentaries. It may be as dry as "the dry bones of the
law" to one who has never studied law, but to the lawyer and law
student it is one of the most interesting and amusing books ever
written. To the lawyer or law student, however, it will be found
to be more than merely amusing It is also a practical aid or sup-
plement to the study of Blackstone. It is remarkable how thor-
oughly a point of law may be impressed on one's mind by a ji/ke,
and A'Beckett's Comic Blackstone is full of instances of this kind.
It contains many hearty laughs and much good law, and no lawyer~
or law student who has a touch of humor in him can fail to appre
date it highly
Price, handsomely bound in cloth, $1.25.
