Miscellany-at-Law: A Diversion for Lawyers and Others
The Miscellany was first published nearly 60 years ago and has become a classic and required reading for anyone interested in the law.

....from the Preface
It seems impossible to give this book an appropriate title. Primarily it is a collection of wise and witty sayings of the judges. For over 650 years - ever since the reign of Edward I - reporters of one kind or another have been recording the words used by the judges while doing their offices; and in that span the long judicial tradition of fine language and delicate and penetrating wit has produced many flowers.

A Second Miscellany-at-Law: A Further Diversion for Lawyers and Others
....from the Preface
Over the last decade there have been many inquiries whether and when a new edition of Miscellany would appear. I should accordingly make it explicit that this is no new edition of Miscellany 1, but an entirely new book: only on rare occasions and for good cause does it repeat anything contained in Miscellany 1. the two books are, however, intended to be uniform, and most of what is said in the Preface to Miscellany 1 applies equally to this book.
