Wildy's Book of the Month - June 2006
The Miscellany was first published 50 years ago and has become a classic and required reading for anyone interested in the law. Wildy and Sons have also published Sir Roberts Arabinesque-at-Law and Inns Ancient and Modern, as well as reprinting his A Second Miscellany-at-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.
