Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Those who retain any memory of the great law cases of fifteen or twenty years back will remember, at least, the title of that extraordinary will case, la"Bartley v. Bartley and others,ra" which occupied the Probate Court for some weeks on end, and caused an amount of public interest rarely accorded to any but the cases considered in the other division of the same court. The case itself was noted for the large quantity of remarkable and unusual evidence presented by the plaintiff's side evidence that took the other party completely by surprise, and overthrew their case like a house of cards. The affair will, perhaps, be more readily recalled as the occasion of the sudden rise to eminence in their profession of Messrs. Crellan, Hunt & Crellan, solicitors for the plaintiff a result due entirely to the wonderful ability shown in this case of building up, apparently out of nothing, a smashing weight of irresistible evidence. That the firm has since maintained indeed enhanced the position it then won for itself need scarcely be said here; its name is familiar to everybody. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: Those who retain any memory of the great law cases of fifteen or twenty years back will remember, at least, the title of that extraordinary will case, "Bartley v. Bartley and others," which occupied the Probate Court for some weeks on end, and caused an amount of public interest rarely accorded to any but the cases considered in the other division of the same court. The case itself was noted for the large quantity of remarkable and unusual evidence presented by the plaintiff's side?evidence that took the other party completely by surprise, and overthrew their case like a house of cards. The affair will, perhaps, be more readily recalled as the occasion of the sudden rise to eminence in their profession of Messrs. Crellan, Hunt & Crellan, solicitors for the plaintiff?a result due entirely to the wonderful ability shown in this case of building up, apparently out of nothing, a smashing weight of irresistible evidence. That the firm has since maintained?indeed enhanced?the position it then won for itself need scarcely be said here; its name is familiar to everybody. But there are not many of the outside public who know that the credit of the whole performance was primarily due to a young clerk in the employ of Messrs. Crellan, who had been given charge of the seemingly desperate task of collecting evidence in the case.

Über den Autor: Morrison was born in 1863 in a slum district of London known as Poplar, a little to the north of the Isle of Dogs, and he grew up there and in other similar slums in East London. He began working as a clerk at the People?s Palace in East London in 1887 when he was 23 years old. He worked on accounts and correspondence, and eventually became a subeditor of the Palace Journal. In 1890, taking the advice from Walter Besant, Morrison decided that he was capable of making a living at journalism. He moved to West London and took a position on a local newspaper, also working at freelance writing. Around this time Morrison was also producing detective short stories which emulated those of Conan Doyle about Sherlock Holmes. Three volumes of Detective Martin Hewitt stories were published. Morrison lived until 1945 but little is known of his life during his last 30 years. He was elected to the Royal Literary Society and in the 1920?s served on its council. When he died in 1945 the world was more astonished to learn that he had been still living than that he was dead.
