Elsynge provides a detailed account of the parliamentary procedure in England, written in response to changes that were taking place in parliamentary procedure at the time, as Parliament was becoming more assertive in its dealings with the monarchy.
The book outlines the traditional way of holding Parliaments in England, including the role of the Speaker of the House of Commons, the order of business, and the procedures for passing bills, and the role of the Speaker.
A smart copy of this very scarce source of insight into the parliamentary process in seventeenth century England.
