Allen, Carleton Kemp. Law in the Making. Oxford: At the Clarendon Press, 1927. Reprint. [New York: The Legal Classics Library, 1992]. xxiii, 388 pp. Calf, decorative gilt stamping, raised bands, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, ribbon marker. Fine. $45. * "While the book does not profess to be a history of philosophical jurisprudence, the student will find in it a valuable introduction to the theories of the various schools, all the more valuable because the theoretical views are introduced in connection with the origin of some practical legal question. I do not think the reader will find anywhere such an adequate and well balanced historical account of the various factors involved in the making of law, nor a more judicious statement of the views of important theoretical interpreters.": John Dewey, Columbia Law Review 28:832-833 cited in Marke, A Catalogue of the Law Collection at New York University (1953) 899.
