Appreciative memorials of lawyers now dead, with many leisurely digressions, references to points of law, with illustrations from individual cases, anecdotes and reminiscences of the men themselves. More a professional book than a layman's book. The style is somewhat suavely pompous. Includes such well known names as Elihu Root, Cardozo, Holmes, Choate, Cadwalader, Field, Evarts and others. High encomiums for his associates. Now connected with firm of Davies, Auerbach, Cornell and Hardy.
