Présentation de l'éditeur

The classic 1881 study of laws and judicial rule-making from a powerful legal thinker before he became a legendary Supreme Court Justice. One of the most original and important books ever written about law, the process of making rules, and legal history — now in a complete and properly-formatted presentation.

This modern and affordable basic edition from Quid Pro Books features active table of contents, linked footnotes, embedded page numbers from the original, hyperaccurate proofreading of the text and notes, true ebook formatting, and the author's original Index. No other digital version of 'The Common Law' — sold or free, online or ebook — has these features. In fact, only our editions include the actual words Holmes wrote, as the others trace back to a poorly-scanned online version that is missing words from the inside margins while attributing to Holmes the wrong words such as "docs" or "modem." Slogging through them is, at best, frustrating. Whole passages are unintelligible, missing every eighth word. Why bother? And they repeat over 250 of "footnote 1," while this one links the notes and re-inserts the original footnote numbers for citing.

This book is also available from the publisher in extended formats featuring a scholarly introduction and biographical summary — and even in a new edition with extensive explanatory annotations, in addition to the introductory material. (The latter is named 'The Annotated Common Law.') The expanded editions explain Holmes's masterpiece so that it is more accessible to nonlawyers and history buffs, as well as law students and those reviewing this book before starting law school. But for a basic version with the complete text and notes in usable form, the present edition meets the need and — at long last — uses care in reproducing Oliver Wendell Holmes's great book exactly as he wrote it.

Also available from Quid Pro Books are new, introduced, and affordable ebook editions of Holmes's 'The Path of the Law'; Warren & Brandeis's 'The Right to Privacy'; Wilson's 'Constitutional Government in the United States'; Llewellyn's 'The Bramble Bush'; and Cardozo's 'The Nature of the Judicial Process.'

Three generations of poor reproductions of this book are enough!

Biographie de l'auteur

Holmes (1841-1935) was a legendary Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and, before that, a recognized legal theorist and historian who brought law to modernity by establishing it as a function of history and policy, not just logic and precedent.

At last, someone has gone to the trouble to do a correct and accurate edition of Holmes with all the footnotes in place, linked and formatted especially for ebooks, with none of the sloppy proofreading that has plagued this sort of material available for the Kindle. This is invaluable and really the only way to read Holmes today.

 (Qu'est-ce que c'est ?)
The law embodies the story of a nation's development many centuries, and it cannot be dealt with as if it contained only the axioms and corollaries of a book of mathematics. &quote;

And as the law is administered by able and experienced men, who know too much to sacrifice good sense to a syllogism, it will be found that, when ancient rules maintain themselves in the way that has been and will be shown in this book, new reasons more fitted to the time have been found for them, and that they gradually receive a new content, and at last a new form, from the grounds to which they have been transplanted. &quote;

The very considerations which judges most rarely mention, and always with an apology, are the secret root from which the law draws all the juices of life. I mean, of course, considerations of what is expedient for the community concerned. &quote;
