Jeremy Hutchinson's Case Histories

£75.00

Product description

This book offers an in-depth study of the many celebrated cases in which the well-known QC Jeremy Hutchinson was involved as a defence lawyer - such as the 'Lady Chatterley' and 'Fanny Hill', cases against George Blake (the spy), Charlie Wilson (Great Train Robber), Christine Keeler (Profumo affair), Tom Keating (art faker), and Howard Marks (drug dealer). Along the way, it presents a fascinating insight into the workings of the Bar, and later the House of Lords, and the path taken by one member of both institutions over a lifetime spanning some 102 years (Hutchinson died November 13th this year).

Thomas Grant QC is a practising barrister and author, who lives in Sussex and London. When he met Jeremy Hutchinson, he asked why he had never written his memoirs, and received the reply that he was 'too busy living in the present'. From this emerged a new type of biography, a joint endeavour illustrating the history of a period through one man's participation in it.

Our copy is in almost as-new condition, with an undamaged and unclipped dust jacket. Bound in plain black cloth with silvered lettering on the spine, it shows no external signs of wear or use, and internally the binding is tight and all pages clean. Black and white photographs enliven the text. The signature of both the author and Jeremy Hutchinson himself are on the title page, in strong black felt-tip pen.
