Trade paperback format.  A slender but pithy volume.

Copland's French to English translation of Tommai's "The Art of Memory" (1584) provides readers a glimpse into the ways places and images can strengthen natural memory. The art of memory is the systematic mental training used to facilitate the storage, retrieval, and creative recombination of ideas and information. Copland details his compilation of peculiar and complex images developed for remembering numbers and syllables alike. This translation specifically reveals how mnemonic techniques can aid those in the legal profession, but goes on to recognize how the benefits of such practice extends to many professions.
