Sober as a Judge - Henry Cecil (1st edition, 1958) - vintage hardback fiction book
 
Henry Cecil, "Sober as a Judge" (London, Michael Joseph Ltd, first edition, 1958). Vintage hardback fiction book, 205pp, measuring approximately 13.5 x 20.7 x 2.4cm (5.3 x 8.15 x 0.95in). "Roger Thursby, whose earlier career was followed through Brothers in Law and Friends at Court, is now a High Court judge and many of his present difficulties arise from the care so august a personage must exercise in his private life. There are, too, extraordinary cases involving a mowing machine, a professional debtor, a libellous ice-cream, and eccentric witnesses to add to Roger's trials."
 
The dustjacket is discoloured, marked and stained with general age wear including bumping, tearing and slight creasing to the edges, whilst the cloth board cover is marked with slight bumping to the corners and very slight bumping to the edges. A previous owner's name is written in ballpoint upon the front endpaper; there is some discoloration to the pages together with foxing to the page edges and endpapers / end pages and a few other marks, and there is some slight bumping to the page edges and corners.
