Wright, William. Advice on the Study and Practice of the Law: With Directions for the Choice of Books. Addressed to Attorneys' Clerks. London: Printed for Charles Hunter, 1824. x, 248 pp. Reprinted 2003 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 2003053955. ISBN 1-58477-370-7. Cloth. $95. * Reprint of the third edition, enlarged. This book was written in the spirit of earlier guides by Fulbeck, Doderidge and Philips, but with a particular emphasis on the needs of clerks. It addresses a clerk's duties, the relationship between clerks and attorneys, ways to work more effectively and other practical matters. Wright is also interested in the clerk's intellectual development. To this end he recommends a rich curriculum of jurisprudential, political, historical and literary works and encourages the study of old court hands and Latin. Like his predecessors, Wright dispenses a good deal of moral advice as well. Equally fascinating and charming, this treatise offers a rich perspective on English clerks during the age of Austen, Dickens and Trollope.
A Grammar of the Arabic Language is a detailed Arabic grammar tutorial, originally written in German by Carl Caspari and translated by British Orientalist William Wright. Often referred to today as Wright's Grammar, the second edition was altered and added to by Wright, and this third (and original final) edition was edited by famous Orientalists M.J. de Goeje and W. Robertson Smith. Wright consulted numerous Arabic sources when making additions and corrections to the work, and as such it is still useful today to students of the Arabic language. WILLIAM WRIGHT (1830-1889) was a British Orientalist and professor of Arabic at Cambridge University. His works are still researched and studied today by students of Arabic and Syriac. His most popular works remain A Grammar of the Arabic Language and the Short History of Syriac Literature. His writings are held today by the British Library and Cambridge University.
