What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Leather Binding, Very Scarce
With preliminaries in English, and the majority of the text in abbreviated Latin, printed in two columns.
This very scarce volume consists of abstracts of pleadings before the King in Parliament and Council, and before the constituted Authorities, from between the twelfth and fourteenth centuries, and contains accounts of petitions and proceedings in parliament.
Illustrated with three facsimile plates. Collated, complete.
With the stamp and inscription of the Worcester College publisher's library to the front pastedown, and their crest in gilt to the front board.
A wonderfully informative and very scarce collection of medieval English legal documents, largely records of the courts of Curia Regis and King's Bench.

Inscription and stamp to front pastedown. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright and generally clean, with light spotting to first and last few leaves.
