About This Item

2015. ISBN-13: 9781584779711; ISBN-10: 1584779713. "An Excellent Repertory Or Table for the Year Books" With a New Introduction and Table of Corrections by David J. Seipp Brooke [Brook], Robert. La Graunde Abridgement, Collect & Escrie per le Iudge Tresreverend Syr Robert Brooke Chivalier, Nadgairs Chiefe Iustice del Common Banke. [And] La Secounde Part du Graunde Abridgement.... Originally published: [London]: In Aedibus Richardi Tottelli, 1573. (iii-xvi new introduction and table), [iv], 360 ff.; [i], 2-338 ff. Reprinted 2015 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. With a New Introduction and Table of Corrections by David J. Seipp, Professor of Law, Boston University. ISBN-13: 9781584779711. ISBN-10: 1584779713. Two volumes (10" x 14"). Hardcover. New. $395. * Reprint of first edition, with a new introduction and table of corrections of marginal citations by David J. Seipp. There are over 21,000 entries in Brooke's Abridgement. In the Table of Corrections of Marginal Citations Professor Seipp identifies and corrects numerous mistakes in reign, year, or folio created in error by Tottell's type-setters or Brooke's pen. Sir Robert Brooke [d.1558] was renowned for his great learning and probity as a judge. His Abridgement is based on Fitzherbert's Abridgement, but it contains much new material. In all, Brooke abridged nearly 21,000 cases and digested them alphabetically under 404 headings. It abridges fully the Year Books of Henry VII and Henry VIII. Brooke proceeded with great care and accuracy, and is believed to have had access to the original records of the Year Books. Coke calls the Abridgement "a worthy and painful work and an excellent repertory or table for the Year Books of the Law" (cited in Marvin's Legal Bibliography 151-152).
