   schema:reviewBody ""Henry Cockburn, Lord Cockburn (1779-1854), a judge of the Court of Session, was a leading personality of nineteenth-century Edinburgh. He became an advocate in 1800 and gained a high reputation both as a persuasive counsel in jury trials and as a shrewd observer of his seniors on the bench and in the Faculty of Advocates. A staunch Whig, and one of the framers of parliamentary reform legislation, he wrote the biography of his fellow Whig (and editor of Edinburgh Review), Francis Jeffrey. His reputation as a man of letters rests principally on his journals, which were published posthumously as Memorials of His Time (1856), The Journal of Henry Cockburn (1874) and Circuit Journeys (1888). Together they present a richly informative portrait of the period and many of its most significant personalities." "Cockburn's published works are complemented by his letters, largely unpublished. This selection of 180 [new] letters - destined to become another classic in the tradition of the Memorials - provides much fresh information about his career as advocate, judge, Whig activist, genial family man and pioneer in building conservation. Together with the rest of his works, they confirm him as a key figure in the generation which followed the Scottish Enlightenment of the eighteenth century. Cockburn respected the past, but was aware of contemporary realities."--BOOK JACKET." ;
