PB A Pen Warmed in Hell Twain, Mark Perenial 1973 Very Good copy, yellowing. Synopsis: At a time when the role of the legal profession, the jury system and other key aspects of American law are under much dispute, Imagining the Law provides a historical perspective on these critical public issues. Historian Norman Cantor explains how and why common law developed out of Roman law, in response to the needs and assumptions of English society and culture from 1000 to 1780, and how it became the basis of the American legal system.
PB Letters from the Earth Twain, Mark Perenial 1974 Very good copy yellowing. These stories, essays, and sketches present Twain at his most vitriolic. The Damned Human Race proves that a snake is a higher life form than an English earl, and Papers of the Adam Family is a sardonic look at the Bible's first couple.
