ABRAHAMS, Gerald. Lunatics and Lawyers. London : Home and Val Thal, (1951).First Edition. Pp -200. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “In t hese stories the lawyer replaces the lover and the poet as the proper literary companion for the lunatic. In a world becoming 'law-conscious' it is important that people shall realize that the pedantic types who 'serve' them are really compact of imagination. For the rest, these stories were writtenat many different places and times, and pretend to no collective unity. Ma ny of them are the reflections of real events: but those characters which were in danger of being true to life have been vested with sufficient of wit, wisdom and other virtues to deprive them of verisimilitude to all intentsand innuendos.” (Preface). White spotting to cloth, covers splayed, else g ood in edgeworn, unclipped, dustjacket. 30.00
