About This Item

1773. A Scarce Digest of Cases from 1688 to 1773 Gentleman of Lincoln's Inn. A Digest of Adjudged Cases in the Court of King's Bench, From the Revolution to the Present Period, Alphabetically Arranged Under the Different Heads of Practice. Comprehending all the Approved Determinations During the Time that Lord Chief Justices Holt, Parker, Pratt, Raymond, Hardwicke, Lee, And Ryder, Presided on that Bench; And also Those of the Present Lord Chief Justice. London: Printed by W. Strahan, And M. Woodfall, 1773. [iv], 839, [1], xxxiv, [2] pp. Main text in parallel columns. Folio (14" x 9"). Contemporary calf, rebacked in period style, blind rules to boards. Raised bands and retained contemporary lettering piece to spine, corners mended. Light rubbing and a few scuffs to boards, one with early repair, moderate rubbing to extremities, gilding mostly rubbed away from lettering piece, hinges cracked, library bookplate to front pastedown, early owner signature to front free endpaper, very light browning to text, light foxing to a few leaves, library stamp to head of p. 1. A nice copy of a scarce title. $500. * Only edition. Covering cases from the end of the Glorious Revolution to 1773, this digest was intended for the "younger part of the profession" that lacked the resources to build a library of reporters or the time to compile a digest of cases. Apparently well-received, it was reissued with same format and pagination in 1775. The first issue is scarce. OCLC locates 4 copies in North America, 3 in law libraries (Harvard, Yale, University of Washington). English Short-Title Catalogue N8868.
