Everybody's Pocket Lawyer [presumed 1928 edition]

£24.99

Product description

In the years after the Great War, there was no doubt a need for a handy reference book that could be used by 'the man in the street' when trying to organise a life disrupted by the huge events that had just taken place. This little volume clearly states on the cover 'What you may do, What you may not do in your Business and Private Affairs', and explains that it deals with 'Landlord and Tenant, Mistress and Maid, and general laws relating to Business and Social Life'. In simple language, it explains many of the legalities which might otherwise mystify the lay reader, and would have been enormously useful.

Ours is a (presumed) 1928 edition copy in Foulsham's Cloth-Bound Pocket Library series, and retains its dust jacket, though this is rather age-worn, particularly at edges and corners, with some small tears and general grubbiness. It has, however, done a good job of protecting the book within, which shows few signs of age, the green cloth covers clean apart from slight browning at top & bottom edges, and minimal shelf wear or bumping of corners. Title in black letters on the front. Inside, the binding is firm with no loose pages; all pages clean. Minimal spots of foxing on the long textblock edge; top edge quite dirty. Slight creasing at the foot of p. 83 may suggest an owner's particular interest in the reporting of cases of libel, slander, assault and dog bites!
