1815 A Treatise on the Law of Evidence
What Our Customers Say...
Early Edition, Very Scarce
The very scarce second edition of Phillipps' work, scarce in all early editions, and first published in 1814.
Phillipps's work examines the key areas of evidence law, including the burden of proof, relevancy, competency, and credibility of witnesses, hearsay, admissions, and confessions. It also covers specific types of evidence, such as character evidence, documentary evidence, and expert testimony.
Retaining the original half title.
With an inscription dated 1849 to the front pastedown, the inscription of J. Oke, Bodmin 1836 to the half title, and a further inscription to the head of the title page.
Widely regarded as a seminal work on the subject, Phillipps' work went through a number of editions, and was also produced in Dublin and America.
