A great read

After hearing so much about this work in law school, I bought a copy a few years ago - from Alibris. I started to read this work and found that much of it is still relavant today. I have even used this work in drafting judicial opinions for my employer- a Judge in New York City.
I would recommend this to any attorney or person who wishess to become a real scholar of the law.
I really like the two volume edition I bought here.
