Original published: London: The Roxburghe Press, [1910?] 108 pp. A pleasant diversion spiced with a wry sense of humor, The Law and Lawyers of Pickwick reviews one of the most famous legal cases in English literature: Bardell v. Pickwick. Lockwood observes that Mr. Pickwick would have fared even worse under the modern law of evidence, which would have allowed Mr. Serjeant Buzfuz to prepare a devastating cross-examination. This volume originated as a lecture delivered in 1893 at Morley Hall, Hackney, that was attended by Henry Fielding Dickens, the author's son and an attorney. His warm reply, which is included here, endorses Lockwood's account. With a frontispiece of Serjeant Buzfuz by the author.
