Housed in a custom clamshell box, quarter morocco over cloth, gilt-edged raised bands and gilt title to spine. $7,500. * An early printing of the Magna Carta, which was first printed around 1508 by Richard Pynson. It also includes the Charta de Foresta of Henry III, the Statutes of Merton and Marlebridge, the Statutes of Edward I and other statutes through the fourteenth regnal year of Elizabeth I, which are digested by topic and cross-referenced to Rastell's Collection of All the Statutes. Among the most notorious statutes are those of Edward I concerning Jews, including the Edict of Expulsion (1290), which banished them from England. Other statutes relate to women, wills, forcible entry, "Fraudulent Deedes" and other topics. The text is mostly in Latin or Law-French, then in English after Fol. 119. The annotations range from a few words to a sentence or two. About half of these are interpretive in nature, the others are references to statutes and cases. Beale, Bibliography of Early English Law Books S18. English Short-Title Catalogue S101094.
