About This Item

1753. Eighteenth-Century English Manuscript Law Dictionary [Manuscript]. [Law Dictionary]. England, c.1753. [326] pp. Quarto (8" x 6-1/2"). Contemporary limp reversed calf with yapp edges, raised bands to spine. Moderate rubbing, a few minor scuffs and stains, binding cocked, several leaves, presumably blank, removed from end of text block. Text in neat, legible hand. Light toning to interior, some staining and soiling to endleaves. $4,500. * Containing terms arranged alphabetically from "Abatement" to "Variance," this manuscript was probably compiled by a student or practitioner. The text is neatly arranged and has very few corrections, which suggests it was compiled from notes and other sources. The definitions include case examples and references to standard legal works. The entries vary in length, but all are detailed. Some are quite long and divided into sub-sections. A few entries include sample forms. (One of these is dated 1753.) The final 22 leaves are an outline summary of the contents. A carefully crafted work, it must have been a valuable reference tool for its compiler.
