Lockwood, Frank. The Law and Lawyers of Pickwick: A Lecture. Originally published: London: The Roxburghe Press, [1910?] 108 pp. Reprinted 2002, 2017 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584772316; ISBN-10: 158477231X. Hardcover. New. $19.95 * With a frontispiece of Serjeant Buzfuz by the author. A pleasant Dickensian diversion spiced with a wry sense of humor, The Law and Lawyers of Pickwick offers an account of one of the most famous legal cases in English literature: Bardell v. Pickwick. Lockwood [1847-1897] observes that Mr. Pickwick would have fared even worse under the modern law of evidence, which would have given Buzfuz an opportunity to prepare a devastating cross-examination. This volume originated as a lecture delivered at Morley Hall, Hackney, in 1893 that was attended by Henry Fielding Dickens, the author's son and an attorney. His reply, which is included here, indicates his warm approval of Lockwood's thesis.
