Learned in the Law: Or, Examples and Encouragements from the Lives of Eminent Lawyers
The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd., 2002 - 386 páginas
A set of biographical sketches of eminent jurists from the 17th through 19th centuries, including Lord Bacon, John Selden, the Earl of Mansfield, Sir William Jones, and Lord Brougham. Intended to encourage emulation, Adams offers a series of "Great Man" portraits in the manner of Carlyle that emphasizes the outstanding moral character, determination, and diligence of his subjects and their crucial contributions to Britain. Like many Victorians, Adams feared that the professional specialization created by the growth of science and industry would eliminate the type of well-rounded personality dear to the English. This concern is evident in his choice of representative figures. He demonstrates in each case that these were men of parts with a breadth of interests that contributed to their greatness as jurists.
