These discourses are not presented as a series. With the exception of the last, which was prepared merely for publication, they were delivered at considerable intervals, and to meet certain aspects of the subject as they presented themselves. As they all develop substantially the same principles, they will probably contain some repetitions. The interest awakened by the publication of the essay before the Albany Convention, and the very general desire expressed to see the second and third of these discourses in print, have decided the author against remoulding the whole into one treatise which he at one time contemplated. He therefore sends them forth in their original shape, with earnest prayer that the great Head of the church may use them, with all their imperfections, to awaken Christian thought and friendly discussion on a subject of vital importance to the welfare of our youth. MARVIN R. VINCENT. TROY, Jan. 9th, 1867.
This book provides coverage of a variety of subjects not found in other entertainment law books, including analytical/transactional/experiential material on some of the unique problems that arise in representing an entertainer; entertainment industry contracts; taxation of entertainers; selling an idea; and the implications of the internet to entertainment and the identities of artists. It includes an international treatment of many of the subjects. In many of the chapters the questions are the kind that arise in law practice, and they ask students to apply what they are about to read or just have read.
This is the story that, in the dining-room of the old Beacon Street house (now the Aldebaran Club), Judge Anthony Bracknell, of the famous East India firm of Bracknell & Saulsbee, when the ladies had withdrawn to the oval parlour (and Maria's harp was throwing its gauzy web of sound across the Common), used to relate to his grandsons, about the year that Buonaparte marched upon Moscow.
