About the Author: Henry Cecil, known to many as His Honour Judge H.C. Leon, MC, was a High Court judge as well as a famous author. He wrote during the three-week-long family holidays which were usually spent in comfortable hotels in Britain. He would sit in a deck chair in a sunny garden, exercise book on lap and pen in hand, writing from 10 am to 1pm, then again from 2.30 to 4 pm each day. His writing career is attributed to his Second World War experiences. Sailing around the Cape on a 'dry' troop ship on the way to Cairo, the colonel asked his adjutant (Cecil) to tell stories to keep the officers' minds off alcohol. The stories were so popular that they became a regular feature, and formed the basis of his first collection, 'Full Circle', published in 1948. Thereafter, the legal year, his impressions at court, or at other official functions, as well as dinners at the Savoy Grill or at his club, the Garrick, all provided material for his considerable brain power. Many of his stories were made into films or plays - notably 'Brothers-in-Law' and 'Alibi for a Judge'. These and other books have also provided a stimulus for those wishing to take up law as a career. They are a delight for those who look for authenticity in the most aptly described British characters. Cecil died in May 1976, still at the height of his mental powers.

Buchbeschreibung David Nutt, London and Winchester, bookseller's catalogue, 1857, 1857. Later quarter cloth and boards, original printed spine-label, 8vo, 23 cm, viii, 704, , 50 pp. 7166 numbered items. A major catalogue, still valuable as a reference. The introduction refers to the contents as including "lists of editions of the Sacred Writings, occupying twenty pages - of copies of Fathers of the Church, Doctors, Schoolmen, and Ecclesiastical Historians, filling eighty-five pages - of Liturgies and Liturgical Literature, extending over forty-one pages - of Councils and Synods, including Canons, Decrees, and Catechisms, and Articles and Confessions of Faith, in nineteen pages - of Canon and Ecclesiastical Law, defining Church Polity and Discipline, in thirteen pages - of Monastic History and Rule, as also of works connected with the Society of Jesus, and its propagandist labours, particularly in America and the East, in forty-three pages - of the disciples of Aquinas and Duns-Scotus, the Thomists and Scottists, in three pages - of Hebrew and Syriac Literature, with Jewish History and Antiquities, Rabbinical Commentators, and their opponents, in twenty-two pages - of Literary History and Bibliography conducive to the Study of Theology, in eight pages - and to the Appendix to all these divisions of one hundred pages. These classes, however, form but a small portion of the contents of the 701 pages of which the entire Catalogue consists ; for there is also scarcely a single work of any note in Dogmatical, Ascetical, Polemical, or Exegetical Theology, or relating to Ecclesiastical History and Antiquities, published in Latin, and but few in German, which will not be found enumerated in the general alphabet; whilst the principal French, Italian, and Spanish Divines, and other great pulpit Orators of the Continent, who have written in their native languages, have in no case been intentionally overlooked." Very Good. Artikel-Nr. ABE-18746
