Axel-Lute on Justice Joseph Bradley's Papers

Paul Axel-Lute, Rutgers University Library for the Center for Law & Justice, has posted Justice Bradley's Docket Books and Law Books at Rutgers-Newark.  Here is the abstract:
Library of Congress
Rutgers University’s Library for the Center for Law and Justice, in Newark, New Jersey, holds the personal docket books of Joseph P. Bradley (Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1870 to 1892), as well as a substantial portion of his law library. Part I of this article provides a physical description of the docket books, reports particular annotations of interest in them, and assesses the extent to which the information they contain is available elsewhere. Part II discusses the size and composition of Bradley’s law library and describes selected works that include manuscript material. Appendices include numerical data on appeal cases.
