The Ludicrous Laws of Old London

A fascinating and entertaining guide to and history of London’s legal institutions and oddities, many of which are still on the Statute books. Until quite recently, for example, a man could be arrested for walking down the street wearing a wig, a robe and silk stockings - unless he was a judge. One ruling from 1540 (and still in force today) makes it illegal for barbers in the City of London to practise surgery; and, with impeccable impartiality, also forbids surgeons to cut hair.

Hardback.
7¼" x 4½", 280 pages.
17 black and white illustrations.
£9.99
