Stubbs, Lewis St. George (1878-1958). The Macdonald Will Case. Winnipeg, Manitoba: Wallingford Press, 1930. First Edition, First Printing. pp. 36. 8vo., measuring 6″ x 9″. Stapled card covers. One facsimile. Remarkably well-preserved, contents remain bright, clean, and unmarked with tight, sound binding; near fine. Stubbs wrote in the Foreword: “Just a word as to the necessity for the publication of this pamphlet. Two weeks ago today, on the 24th ult., I delivered my final, reasoned, written Judgement in “The Macdonald Will Case.” The case is one of the most important in the history of the Province; and, perhaps, no previous Judgement in our courts ever so vitally affected the public interests. Yet the JUDGEMENT has been practically suppressed in the public press, ostensibly from fear or through threat of libel action”. Lewis St. George Stubbs served as the Surrogate Judge and Senior Country Court Judge for the Eastern Judicial District for the Province of Manitoba at the time of the rendering of his verdict. Stapled Wraps. See Peel #5508. (#2381) $118.00
