Arguably one of the most imposing volumes in the history of English law, Fitzherbert abridged 13,485 cases under 263 titles in alphabetical order. It was the first serious attempt to set the law down in systematic shape, and served as a model to such writers as Brooke and Rolle. According to Boersma, Fitzherbert accomplished "nothing less than to abridge all notes of significant cases at common law." Graham and Heckel refer to this work as the "book that 'made' the common law.": Law Library Journal 51 [1957]: 100-101.
