Introduction to Pollock Sir Frederick

Sir Frederick Pollock (1845-1937), British legal scholar who originated the modern English legal textbook with his Principles of Contract (1876) and his Law of Torts (1887). Pollock was born in London. He was professor of jurisprudence at the University of Oxford from 1883 to 1903 and the first editor of the Law Quarterly, founded 1885. Pollock was appointed in 1895 as editor of the Law Reports, a publication containing judicial decisions and opinions. In his 40 years as editor he remained at the center of English law, a formidable eminence to whom even judges deferred. He followed the legal achievements of the United States with admiration and developed a close friendship with Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. through an exchange of letters dating from 1874 to 1932.” (1)
