FORD, Rev. John C. THE FUNDAMENTALS OF HOLMES' JURISTIC PHILOSOPHY. [NY]: Reprinted From The Fordham Law Review, November 1942. 8vo., tan printed wraps; 23 pages. Scarce work by Rev. Ford that exposes Holmes' pragmatic materialistic philosophy in a scathing review, tearing apart Holmes' fallacy of "might makes right" totalitarianism, to which Holmes audaciously aspired to justify. Signed inscription from Ford on the front cover: "With my compliments, John C. Ford SJ." A scarce original reprint with an equally scarce signature. Good (some browning covers and once folded down the middle; two neat repairs to spine ends with clear, archival tapes; few minor pencil marks next to text). $85.00.
