Out Of Print

....Being sixty-six Misleading Cases revised and collected in one volume, including ten cases not published before

Uncommon Law is a collection of his finest, most peculiar, most comical cases and includes such unlikely trials as 'What is a Motor-Car?', 'The Negotiable Cow' and 'Is Laughter Illegal?'.

Amidst the laughter and incredulity, A P Herbert takes a fair few sideswipes at the absurdities of the English law.

ACKNOWLEDGMENT
Most of these cases were originally reported in the pages of Punch, to the Proprietors of which paper I render thanks for their courtesy in permitting me to reprint them.

-I wish to thank also Mr. E. S. P. Haynes, Mr. H. G Strauss, Mr. George Bull, and other legal friends who have generously assisted me with advice and information on the rare points of law with which I was not familiar.
A.P.H.
