About This Item

London: [London:] In Ædibus Ricardi Tottell duodecimo Nouembris. (1565.) [colophon:] In ædibus Richardi Tottelli. Anno Salutis. 1565. 12. Nouembris., 1565. 2nd Edition . Leather. Very Good. Description: Two volumes in one. Folio (16 × 10½ in): [1], 379; [1], 128, 1, 3-5, 5-207 l. · Register: 2º: A-2Z^8 2['et' sigla]^8 2['con' sigla]^4 ²A^8 3B-Q^8 3R1 (A2, A3, A4 signed 'A1', 'A2', 'A3'; 3B1 signed 'b'); A^8(-A8) B-V^8 W^8 X-Z^8 &^8 *^8 (new register and pagination begins at 'Obligacion' in second volume). · Condition: Early calf boards with wear, rebacked; front joint cracked, but cords secure. First title-page remargined, some color added to woodcut frame. First title-page and first and last pages somewhat soiled; remainder wide-margined and clean, with exceptionally clear print. · Comments: Second edition. The first edition was printed between 1514 and 1517 and was one of the largest publishing efforts of its day. It digests 13,845 cases, including 39 brief original reports taken by Fitzherbert himself and extracts of several unprinted year books. This second edition was the last to be printed in a large format. Fitzherbert became a justice of the court of common pleas in 1522, an office he held until his death. As a judge, he was known for his legal conservatism, rejecting several recent precedents (including one won by himself as an advocate) as inconsistent with the ancient law. Whether his industry in compiling the abridgment made him conservative or whether his conservatism motivated his effort is an interesting question. · References: ODNB, J. H. Baker, "Fitzherbert, Sir Anthony (c.1470-1538)"; Cowley 55; Beale R463 & R464; STC 10956; ESTC S122166.
