From the acknowledgements: "In October 1981, The Second Circuit Historical Committee and the Federal Bar Council jointly sponsored an exhibition at the United States Courthouse in New York City on the human side of the two lifelong companions and friends who gave sparkle and strength to the Federal Judiciary for over half a century - Augustus and Learned Hand. The exhibit cases however were simply not large enough to display all of the delightful memorabilia the researchers were able to uncover. The Foundation of the Federal Bar Council has therefore undertaken to publish this limited edition volume to make these materials available to readers who have a particular interest in the Hand cousins." From the Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition: "Learned Hand, 1872-1961, American jurist, b. Albany, N.Y. He received his law degree from Harvard in 1896. He was a judge of the U.S. District Court for New York's Southern District (1909-24) and of the federal Second Circuit Court of Appeals (1924-51). Often called the "tenth justice of the Supreme Court," and regarded as one of the finest jurists in American history, Hand delivered more than 2,000 opinions, and was noted especially as a defender of free speech. He is the author of The Spirit of Liberty, a collection of papers and addresses (1952), and of The Bill of Rights, a series of lectures (1958).". N° de réf. du libraire 20212
