Sir William Blackstone 1723-1780
The First Vinerian Professor of Law in the English Speaking World

A British jurist, Doctor of Civil Law and professor at Oxford University, William Blackstone began lecturing on the common law of England in 1753. He was the first to teach English law in a British university. In 1758 he was elected to the Oxford University Vinerian chair of law, which was the first chair of common law established in the English speaking world. Professor Blackstone’s lectures were published as his Commentaries on the Laws of England (1756-69). This work became the foundation of legal education in England and North America and dominated the common law legal system for over a century. Sir William Blackstone is considered to be the single greatest influence to both British and American jurisprudence.

Man Reaching To Outer Space
1957

“Man Reaching To Outer Space” was created in 1957 and was never published. Its creation was inspired by the birth of the space age.

It became evident that the realization of mankind’s dream to conquer the heavens would offer a stage for military destruction. Sculptor Felix de Weldon’s masterpiece symbolizes the spirit of international cooperation necessary for the survival of humanity.
Felix de Weldon authorized the release of “Man Reaching To Outer Space” before his death. Cast in bronze in a limited edition of one hundred and ninety five pieces, each magnificent sculpture is signed and numbered and assigned a Certificate of Authenticity personally signed by the artist.
