Out Of Print
After his successes in Uncommon Law Albert Haddock returns to take up a new series of bizarre, peculiar and just plain baffling cases. Faced with such quandaries as 'How Free is a Freeman?', 'How Much Can you Kill a Burglar?', and 'The Law of Sitting', Haddock once again emerges as the hero of the courtroom.

More Uncommon Law sees A P Herbert brilliantly, and hilariously, revealing more of the great absurdities of English law, whilst making some incisive observations about human nature.

Sir Alan Herbert was the author of a host of articles, essays, sketches, novels, criticisms, musicals, plays and poems. A long-standing contributor of Punch, he used his column to campaign for a number of reforms - notably a change in the divorce laws - but always with his characteristic wry humour and a great sense of fun.

By the time of his death in 1971, he had established a large following including such literary greats as H G Wells, Rudyard Kipling, John Galsworthy and Hilaire Belloc.

Reprinted in 1989 with a different cover.
