(price-clipped) [moderate wear to book at bottom edge and extremities; jacket has tiny tears and very slight paper loss at several corners, some wrinkling/creasing along top edge, spine a little sun-browned]. (B&W photographs) "The Hiss trial is one of the most famous cases of this century. It has been the central theme of two American books, and one of the chief protagonists has published an account of the history of the trial and of the circumstances of his association with Alger Hiss. [The reference here is to "Witness" by Whittaker Chambers.] None of these writers has, however, attempted to deal with the case from the detached point of view of a lawyer who desires merely to review the evidence which was presented in the course of the case. This is the task Lord Jowitt has undertaken." Jolly sporting of you, m'Lord!
