Dr Johnson and the Law and other essays on Johnson
by Tom Bingham

This beautifully illustrated publication contains essays by Lord Bingham, the former Lord Chief Justice. Bingham was a great fan of Johnson, commenting that he "said more sensible things about the law than any lawyer who ever lived."

The three essays by Lord Bingham are Dr Johnson and the Law, A Sermon on Dr Johnson and Clubs and Clubbability. The volume also includes a foreword by Robin de Wilde and an essay by the Curator of Dr Johnson's House.
