About This Item

1669. London, 1669. 2nd ed. London, 1669. 2nd ed. Early Edition of Coke's Second Institutes: Includes Coke's Landmark Commentary on Magna Carta Coke, Sir Edward [1552-1634]. The Second Part of the Institutes of the Lawes of England. Containing the Exposition of Many Ancient, And Other Statutes; Whereof You May See the Particulars in a Table Following. London: Printed for A. Crooke, W. Leake, A. Roper, [et al.], 1669. [x], 745, [41] pp. Folio (11-3/4" x 7-1/2"). Contemporary paneled calf, raised bands to spine, early repairs to front board, later repair to foot of spine. A few minor nicks and scuffs to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities, a few minor chips to board edges, corners bumped, hinges mended. Light toning to text, occasional (very) faint dampstaining to lower margins, edgewear and light soiling to title page. A handsome copy. $800. * Second edition. The Second Part of the Institutes, an exposition of "many ancient and other statutes" including Magna Carta, was published by order of the House of Commons after the author's death. It is a landmark work because it offered a novel interpretation of Magna Carta. Reflecting contemporary struggles between the king and Parliament, Coke presented the charter as the ancient constitution of England, one that established the fundamental rights of Englishmen and placed royal power under the laws of the land. Perhaps the most famous section is Coke's commentary on the 29th chapter, in which he traced the origins of trial by jury and the right of habeas corpus. English Short-Title Catalogue R30266.
