This reprint of the eighteenth edition is among the editions that Marvin claims are "preferred to the elder editions, both on account of the convenient reference to notes and for the excellent index." Marvin 205. "If Bracton first began the codification of the common law, it was Coke who completed it.... In the Institutes,... the tradition of the common law from Bracton to Littleton, whose name Coke's Commentary made famous, firmly established itself as the basis of the constitution of the Realm." Printing and the Mind of Man 126.
